"Should You Believe What You See on the TV News?" Baker Institute Happy Hour with Robert Bazell

If you’ve ever watched NBC News or the Today show, you’ve probably seen award-winning science correspondent Robert Bazell. Now a professor at Yale University and a Baker Institute fellow, Bazell will be the featured speaker at the Associate Roundtable’s first event of the year. Join us as Bazell — who was one of the first reporters to cover the emerging AIDS epidemic in the early 1980s and won two Emmys for his reports on the human brain — discusses the successes and failures of TV news and takes your questions. Don’t miss out on a behind-the-scenes look at TV journalism from one of the most respected science reporters in the business. The buffet tables will be loaded with Tex-Mex food, and your first round of drinks is on us!
