Politics of the Rich and Famous: The Influence of Celebrities on Politics


In this interactive discussion, Dr. Mark Harvey will address the rising power and influence of celebrities in politics. How did we get to the point where celebrities are prominent influences in our society? In politics? How did we get to the point where we have a celebrity president? How do we feel about their influence?

Moreover, is our democracy better or worse because of the rising power of these figures?
