Clip of the Week: “Represent NYC: Is Democracy at Stake?”


Fourteen days stand between us and Inauguration Day. As a new administration prepares to radically overhaul the policies and initiatives of the last eight years, we pause to reflect on the year in politics and look ahead to 2017 and its potential developments.


Dr. Lincoln Mitchell, political science scholar and author of “The Democracy Promotion Paradox,” and Jarrett Murphy, executive editor of Education City Limits, discuss the current and potential impact of the Trump presidency on New York City, the role of the media in a new political climate, and what to look out for in 2017. Ben Max, executive editor of the Gotham Gazette, moderates the timely and critical discussion.

“Represent NYC” airs every Sunday at 7pm and repeats on Wednesdays at 9pm on MNN1 (TWC 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33), MNN's HD Community Channel (TWC 1993) or streaming live on
