“Covering Presidential Campaigns” will take a critical look at the news media’s role in the race for the White House. The course will cover the entire span of a presidential campaign cycle, from the early jockeying among potential candidates which can begin years before Election Day to the peaceful transition of power culminating on Inauguration Day. We’ll examine the complicated love-hate relationship between campaigns and the press which can be both adversarial and symbiotic. We’ll draw mostly from post-World War II presidential elections with a focus on the unfolding 2020 campaign.
