It's a Presidential election year. The stage is set. The 24-hour cable television stations, never-ending sea of talk radio shows and countlessnumber of blogs & Twitter posts ALL seem to feed on negativity.
Whether it's Obama vs. Romney or Telfer vs. Knopp, the question is raised... in a world where one derogatory, off-handed comment can fuel days or even weeks of finger-pointing and self-righteous debate by pundits and political operatives, can there be civility in politics?
Join City Club and Chris Lehman, Salem political correspondent for the Northwest News Network, on May 17 to discuss the role of civility in politics.
