As part of GZERO Media’s election coverage, we are tracking the impact of disinformation and conspiracy theories on democracy. To get a sense for how this election may be pulled down a dark and dangerous rabbit hole, click here for our interactive guide to conspiracy theories.

Will Trump's criminal conviction cost him votes?

Just days after former President Donald Trump’s historic felony conviction, Ian Bremmer sits down with the New Yorker’s Susan Glasser and former US Attorney Preet Bharara to discuss the impact of the verdict conviction on the 2024 election and democracy itself.

Will Trump's criminal conviction ruin his campaign - or American democracy? Insights from Susan Glasser and Preet Bharara

Listen: On this episode of the GZERO World Podcast, Ian Bremmer discusses the political and legal implications of Donald Trump’s felony conviction for the 2024 election and for democracy itself with the New Yorker’s Susan Glasser and former US Attorney Preet Bharara.

Listen: On this episode of the GZERO World Podcast, Ian Bremmer discusses the political and legal implications of Donald Trump’s felony conviction for the 2024 election and for democracy itself with the New Yorker’s Susan Glasser and former US Attorney Preet Bharara.

He’s the first US president to be convicted of a crime. Donald Trump’s 34 felony counts have upended the 2024 Presidential election (for now) and exposed the vulnerability of core democratic institutions like the justice system.


"The GOP's revisionist history on the trial has already begun," The New Yorker’s Susan Glasser tells Bremmer. Former US Attorney Preet Bharara also underscores the trial’s legitimacy, stating, "It was an open and fair proceeding. There was a judge who ruled often for the prosecution, but often as well for Donald Trump's side."

"The [Republican] party” Glasser adds, “has essentially mortgaged itself to the fate of one individual."

Both guests underscore the critical crossroads at which American democracy stands and the profound consequences of Trump's conviction for the upcoming election. Whether or not Trump wins in November is an open question. So, too, is the fate of our democratic institutions.

You vs. the News: GZERO's Weekly News Quiz

Think you know what's going on around the world? Here's your chance to prove it.


WHAT.

GZERO Media is a company dedicated to providing the public with intelligent and engaging coverage of global affairs. It was created in 2017 as a subsidiary of Eurasia Group, the world's leading political risk analysis firm.

WHY.

Interest in global affairs is soaring these days, and yet traditional sources of insight are either too politicized, too polarizing, or too boring.


We believe there's a better way to help people understand the forces that are reshaping their world. By delivering deep insight with a light touch. By taking a global view. By pushing beyond predictable opinions and formats to inform, engage, challenge, and entertain.

HOW.

Our approach is at once journalistic, analytical, and creative. We not only explain the most important stories in the world today — we tease out the critical connections between them, so you can be smart about what comes next.

Whether you get the daily dish on global affairs from our GZERO Daily newsletter, see global leaders in a different light onGZERO World with Ian Bremmer, or get your fix of laughter and outrage from our political satire show PUPPET REGIME, we hope that you come away with a broader and deeper understanding of the world.

WHAT'S BEHIND OUR NAME?

For decades, a small number of leading countries regularly came together – in formats like the Group of Seven (G7) or the wider Group of 20 (G20) – to seek collective solutions to the world's most pressing challenges. What's more, the United States used its power, for better or worse, as a kind of "G1" to underwrite global norms of global commerce, finance, and security.

Today, that order is slipping away. No single power or group of powers is willing or able to set a global agenda. It's a world of many pretenders, but no leaders. Welcome to the GZERO.

What impact will AI have on gender equality?

At the current rate of progress toward gender equality, the World Economic Forum estimates it will take 131 years for women to attain parity in income, status, and leadership. While technology is a powerful tool to help close the gender gap, it can also be weaponized.
