Filler will discuss the difficulty of communicating ideas convincingly to those whose beliefs differ. It’s particularly a problem when no one can even agree on the facts, but it’s made worse when we adopt tones meant to earn our supporters’ approval rather than our opponents’ attention.”
Lane Filler is a columnist and editorial board member with Newsday. He won the Bastiat Prize in 2013, the same year the editorial project he lead was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. He has covered presidential elections for two decades, and even covered them as a working journalist in states with meaningful primaries (South Carolina) and states with meaningful general elections (Pennsylvania). He was also a war correspondent embedded with elements of the Pennsylvania National Guard in Baghdad and Kuwait in 2004, which is far more interesting than the thousands of sewer board, city council and school district meetings he has covered, not to mention the quilting bees, spelling bees and killer bee attacks. Now he writes on national politics, education, business, economics and whatever is irritating him at the moment, which can be a monumental task. Filler, 47, is married and has one daughter.
