At our meeting a week before the 2020 Presidential election, our speaker was Matt Viser, political reporter from the Washington Post, who is following the Joe Biden campaign. Our ‘business meeting’ was a normal busy meeting with updates on several activities: induction of Pamela Phillips as our newest member, Walk for Water on 31 Oct, TFG Travel Raffle ticket sales, and TFG Fine Dining. Matt Viser told us that covering the election in the pandemic is different with now newsroom where reporters could congregate and share info and insights as well as having to mostly cover the campaign remotely from home which deprives him of hearing unscripted asides by candidate and staff as well as talking with voters to determine where their interests and concerns really lie. This was a most interesting speech since we are almost universally almost totally wrapped up in all the news and analysis of the pandemic and the election.
