The Media in America: Determined Press, Skeptical Public, and the Next Presidential Race

Michael Calderone

Back to "Fall 2018" courses

With a focus on presidential campaigns and the presidency, this course will examine the traditional role of political journalism in a rapidly shifting media landscape. The seminar will tackle questions about journalists' priorities in the previous presidential election, and emerging threats to democracy, media distrust, and rampant misinformation as the next presidential race approaches. Students will look closely at how technology has changed campaign reporting, and engage critically on political media issues.

If the course fills, students may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a wait list. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
