Media Coverage and the 2016 Presidential Primaries (on Joy Cardin Show)

July 22, 2015 Leave a comment

I spent an hour on the¬†Joy Cardin Show talking about media coverage in the 2016 presidential primaries today. We talked about the changing media landscape, Donald Trump, Gov. Walker, efforts from candidates to control their message, research dealing with how newspapers cover candidates they endorse, the hostile media effect and took some calls claiming the media are in the bag for both Wisconsin¬†Gov. Scott Walker and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It was a fun hour – I got to quote Dan Rather’s (talking about Trump) “his chances are between slim and none and slim just left town.”

One goof I made was misspeaking about the years Joe Biden ran for president. I said 1988 and 2012, but of course he ran in 1988 and 2008. The line to rescind my Ph.D. forms at the right.

Talking 2016 with Barry Burden of the Elections Research Center at UW-Madison

I was delighted to have my colleague and friend Barry Burden join me as I guest-hosted “A Public Affair” on 89.9 WORT in Madison. We talked about the Elections Research Center at UW-Madison (the center is new and Barry is the founding director), the 2016 presidential race, the 2016 Wisconsin senate race, poli-sci related nuts and bolts about elections, and took calls from listeners.
