2019 Gubernatorial Debate
September 19th

The LSU Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs has partnered with Nexstar Media to host a 2019 Gubernatorial Debate on September 19, 2019. As a red state with the only Democratic incumbent running for reelection this cycle, all eyes will be focused on Louisiana to serve as a barometer for the 2020 presidential cycle. The debate will be held in the LSU Student Union Theatre and broadcast live across the state. It is also expected to be picked up by national media outlets.

Doors will open at 5:30 PM and close at 6:30 PM. Guests must register with their legal name and present their ticket and photo ID to be allowed entrance.

No signs or large printed campaign materials will be allowed inside the theatre.

Shock and Awe: A Screening and Conversation with John Walcott
September 25

The Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs at LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication will host a screening of the movie, “Shock and Awe”and a discussion about the value of journalism to democracy with journalist John Walcott on September 25. Walcott’s work was featured in this 2017 movie for his investigative reporting on the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Dubbed by HuffPost as “the reporting team that got Iraq right,” the film tells the story of how the team of Washington Bureau journalists at Knight Ridder, Inc.—including Walcott—investigated and reported on the Bush Administration's 2003 bombing campaign Iraq at the start of the war.
