The How and Why of Political Advertising
- This is a past program
Hammer Forum is made possible by the Rosenbloom Family
How does campaign spending work and why are political ads effective? Does this advertising distort our electoral and political processes? How does social media change the way we get campaign information? LMU professor Fernando Guerra and campaign strategist John Thomas join moderator and Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson to break down the politics and law behind campaign spending and advertising. The panel will discuss whether this spending distorts our elections, how social media changes elections, and what we will be voting on in March.
Hammer Forum is an ongoing series of timely, thought-provoking events addressing social and political issues.
Hammer Forum is made possible in part by Bronya and Andrew Galef.
