The digital world we live in: A journalist’s view on world politics, power and popular opinion
09/20/2017 @ 12:30 - 13:30
Roger Cohen, born in Britain, living in the USA, has been covering the world’s events for more than two decades. He has worked on almost every continent and for 24 years, he has been writing for the New York Times. Covering every major foreign event including the Bosnian War, 9/11 and the Brexit, Roger Cohen has seen how the world stage has changed and how digitization has influenced politics, media and opinion forming. Most recently, he has observed and sharply commented on the rise in popularity of Donald Trump and supermacists.
Four days before the German federal election, Roger Cohen will look at the big picture of the digital world we live in: the echo chamber of social media, manipulation of opinion through Russian cyber-attacks, the rise of the new right and AfD hiring Trump’s former digital campaign manager – these are just some topics that we will discuss during the next Digital Mastermind.
