Whither the State?: Campaigns and the Media


Dennis Dresang
Terry Shelton

Our focus this fall is on elections and the media. We will discuss campaigns for President, Congress (especially the U.S. Senate) and the Wisconsin State Legislature. Our examination of the media will include newspapers, radio, tv and social media (Twitter, podcasts, blogs such as Medium, Instagram, etc.) and will cover the roles, ethics and behavior of the media. We will schedule visits by candidates, reporters, editors and other participants and experts.
