Throughout the election season, The Atlantic's politics team will offer readers a chance to ask questions about what's happening in the campaigns and around the country. Friday, August 31 at 1 p.m. Eastern, James Fallows will take your questions. A contributor to the magazine since the 1970s, he wrote this month's cover story on Mitt Romney's and Barack Obama's strengths and weaknesses in the coming presidential debates. He has also written widely on false equivalence in the media and how reporters deal with political lies. Come here and ask him about those topics and others. You can ask questions using Cover It Live, below, or tweet them with the hashtag #ATLofficehours.
