Your Weekly Political Roundup
Fridays at 7:30 PM, KUED CHANNEL 7
OCTOBER 21, 2016 PANEL
The Full Trump has happened: the Republican Nominee states he will question the election outcome if he doesn’t win. He has blamed all Media for his downward slide, including Saturday Night Live. What is his endgame? Hillary Clinton has a huge lead among women, even as more Wikileaks documents paint her in a bad light. Utah Voters now support Evan McMullin over both major party candidates. What does that mean for the races down the ballot?
Ladd Egan and Andrew Adams of KSL and Political Commentator Frank Pignanelli join Host Jason Perry to discuss the issues of the week on The Hinckley Report. Friday Night at 7:30 PM, or online at www.kued.org/hinckleyreport.
KUED has launched a new weekly half-hour public affairs series in partnership with the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah.
The Hinckley Report, airing Fridays at 7:30 p.m., features host Jason Perry, Director of the Hinckley Institute and University Vice President for Government Relations, with a rotating panel of Utah journalists discussing the week’s events and political issues. The alternate host will be Dr. Morgan Lyon Cotti, the Hinckley Institute’s State Program Manager.
"The Hinckley Report was created to elevate the dialogue surrounding pressing political issues— and how they relate to Utah,” says Perry. “We are thrilled to collaborate with KUED in providing Utahns with in-depth and expert analysis on a weekly basis."
Adds Lisa D. Olken, KUED Director of Content, “When we thought of launching a public affairs series to provide insight into and analysis of Utah news and political issues, we naturally thought of a partnership with the Hinckley Institute. We’re pleased to be collaborating with them to offer this timely and relevant weekly series to the community.”
Produced by KUED’s Erik Nielsen and filmed in the KUED Cleone Peterson Eccles Studio, The Hinckley Report is modeled after PBS’ Washington Week, a roundtable of journalists discussing the issues of the week.
“We’re launching the series now to try to help viewers make sense of the very interesting 2016 presidential elections,” says Nielsen. “We’ll cover local issues including Utah elections and the 2017 legislative session. Guest journalists will provide insight into topics they cover regularly.”
The weekly series, along with web extras, will be available online at kued.org. Charlie Rose—The Week moves to Sundays at noon.
