Media and political leaders honor George

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Media and political leaders gathered at Harvard University to honor the late John F. Kennedy Jr. and discuss the impact of his magazine, George.

The Tuesday night panel discussion on the relationship between culture, politics and the media was moderated by former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw at the Cambridge, Mass., school's Institute of Politics, the Harvard Crimson reported Wednesday.


Former President Bill Clinton told the audience via satellite that George magazine "blurred the political, civic and personal" while altering the U.S. political landscape, the Crimson said.

Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., was emotional as he discussed his nephew, who was killed in a 1999 plane crash, and the magazine's mission.

In her opening remarks, Caroline Kennedy said her brother used to tell her, "Second children start revolutions."

Other speakers included Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, also by satellite, Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes, Rock the Vote President Jehmu Greene and CNN political analyst and George contributor Paul Begala.
