Bob Schieffer, one of America’s pre-eminent television journalists and former host of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” talks about his new book, “Overload: Finding Truth in Today’s Deluge of News.”

From the explosion of fake news to the challenges of the 24 hour news cycle, the book examines political journalism today and those who practice it. Based on interviews with over 40 media leaders, Schieffer provides an inside look at the changing role of media and asks whether today’s citizens are more informed or just overwhelmed.

A book signing will follow the program.

“The President and the Press” explores the Trump administration’s relationship with the press, pertinent challenges to the First Amendment, and protecting the free flow of information in a divided nation.
