SXSW SESSION DESCRIPTION

2016 Election: How we got it all wrong!

 Sam Sanders, NPR Correspondent, will give his first hand experience covering the 2016 Presidential Election. Sanders will also discuss how NPR, along with other media outlets, led the country to believe the fate of the election was decided when, in fact the American public proved otherwise. Sanders will review the past 18 months of campaign events and rhetoric that led pollsters and the public alike to presume the success or failure of the next Presidential and Congressional Election
