Re: David Brock to speak at Hopkins

Journalist David Brock will speak at The Johns Hopkins University on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2002, about "Defining the Times: The Power of the News Media." The lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing.

Brock's speech is part of the 2002 Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, "Changing Times: Who are We? An Introspective Look at American Identity in the 21st Century," a student-run series examining the influence of various political, social and scientific advances on the collective American identity. The lecture will be at 8 p.m. in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. The event is free and open to the public.

Ten years ago, Brock catapulted to fame after he wrote a controversial investigative story for The American Spectator, questioning the credibility of Anita Hill's allegations of sexual harassment by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Brock expanded upon the piece with his book The Real Anita Hill: The Untold Story and then wrote about President Bill Clinton's extramarital affairs. Brock later admitted to attacking both Clinton and Hill in print and relinquished his status as a "right-wing hit man." He tells the tale in his new book, Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative.

For more information, call (410) 516-7683, visit the MSE Symposium Web site at www.jhu.edu/mse or send an e-mail message to mse@jhu.edu.

When: 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2002
Where: Shriver Hall, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore
