Spin Control: Cutting Through the Rhetoric of Political Debates
Casey Schmitt, Lakeland University Instructor of Communication

Are you feeling election fatigue? Feeling unsatisfied with the presidential candidates and thinking about sitting this election out? Or, are you just unsure that the candidates are saying anything meaningful? At the ThinkHaus lecture on Thursday, Oct. 6, Lakeland University Assistant Professor of Communication Casey R. Schmitt helped audience members cut through the political rhetoric – in a nonpartisan way – to understand what the candidates are really saying. The presentation, was followed by a discussion between the speaker and the audience. You won’t watch a debate the same again.
