Jamieson Talks About Obama's Campaign Promises - Kept and Not Kept

Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Ph.D., the Elizabeth Ware Packard Professor of Communication and Director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center, spoke at a forum at Syracuse University on October 12 as part of that school's University Lecture Series. The title of her talk was "Finding the Hidden Meanings in Presidential Messages."

"When they [politicians} say something that appears to be very, very carefully worded, beware," she said. In the world of big media, "anything can be edited and taken out of context."
