witf introduces 'Smart Talk Friday' radio program

How do you idenitfy yourself politically? witf's Public Insight Network wants to know

Written by Scott LaMar, Smart Talk Host/Executive Producer | Sep 7, 2012 8:04 PM

Radio Smart talk for Monday, September 10:

The Democratic and Republican conventions are over and the election is just eight weeks away.  By most measures, the two main parties appear to be further apart than any time in recent memory.  We live in a partisan and, some would say, very divided country.

On Monday’s Radio Smart Talk, witf will launch a new initiative called the Public Insight Network.  PIN is described as a way for witf’s various audiences to share their insights, knowledge and expertise with journalists to make news coverage more accurate, relevant, transparent and trustworthy.

witf’s very first “query” amounts to a set of questions about your opinions on politics.  The questions include what party you most identify with and why.  

We’ll begin Monday’s program with a discussion of the parties and their philosophies.  We’ll then turn to PIN and explain how you can participate and why it’s important.
