Mr Steve Clemons, Washington Editor-at-Large for The Altantic and Editor of Atlantic Live was hosted by the Perth USAsia Centre for a private roundtable luncheon under Chatham House rules, on American foreign policy and the media.
- The world is bearing witness to the power in the politics of distraction.
- The concept of 'fake news' is not new. The negotiation of 'truth' in the media has been going on for some time.
- The United States (US) is, at least in spirit, currently experiencing a process of strategic contraction.
- There is a model of looking at the US Presidency which depicts the U.S. President as being more than a person, but a franchise.
