Grading

This course examines the interrelationships between the media, the government, and the public, as well as how these relationships influence our political life. While we will trace the evolution of the media in the United States as it relates to politics, our main focus will be on contemporary developments. In particular we will pay close attention to media coverage of the current electoral campaigns.
