What About the Media?

The Media Filing Center

The Media Filing Center

The doors of Sullivan Arena, home of tonight’s CNN debates, have finally opened to its 700 attendees. But on the other side of campus, the Carr Center has its own line as media from around the world settle into the media filing center to watch the debate.

More than 300 accredited journalists are expected to cover the debates from campus including the New York Times and the NHK Broadcasting Corporation from Japan. The media will watch the debates and then file their stories.

Following the debate, the reporters will move to the spin room to talk with candidates (or candidates' surrogates).
