Introduction to American Government students recently had the opportunity to gain insight from political reporter George Bennett.
Northwood University Introduction to American Government students recently enjoyed a presentation from George Bennett, a political reporter and columnist for the Palm Beach Post.
Bennett shared that his role as a political reporter has an impact on political parties, candidates, elections and the operation of government.
"Hearing about the media's impact on society directly from the source is a greater learning experience for students than merely reading about it in a textbook or listening to a lecture," said Justice Ira J. Raab (Retired), Adjunct Professor of American Government, Northwood University.
Students asked a variety of questions relating to how media acquire leads, verify sources, and more.
Bennett has been a Palm Beach Post reporter since 1992. In addition to his reporting duties, he writes a Monday politics column in the local news section and is a frequent contributor to the Post On Politics blog. He's a graduate of The George Washington University.
