    An Online Event

Join us for an exclusive evening with the BBC’s former North America Editor Jon Sopel.

"Dealing with the Donald"

Donald Trump turned American politics on its head. He left the media bemused about what to do about a President who constantly lied.

Jon Sopel, then the BBC’s North America editor, was at the forefront of this battle. In this exclusive Media Society event Jon talks about his experiences of covering the tumultuous politics of the White House.

What lessons do we need to learn for next time when Trump may again be the candidate?

Join us for what promises to be a fascinating evening with Jon Sopel in conversation with the journalist and broadcaster Phil Harding.

Jon will talk about his career as a top broadcaster, at the centre of events in London and Washington, and what’s coming next.
