If you are intrigued by the issues that lie at the intersection of politics and the media, especially as it applies to the 2012 election, then join Professor Marvin Druker for the course, LOS 323 “Politics and the Media.”
The class meets beginning Wednesday, September 5th from 4-6:30 p.m. During the course, students will examine how the news media cover elections, the President, Congress, and other parts of government. Class participants will explore and have lively, informed discussions about the implications of American political campaigns and their media coverage including: the role of political parties and interest groups, the recruitment of candidates, the use of negative advertising, the effects of media coverage, the history of presidential campaigns, the functions of political consultants, and the impact of campaigns and elections on public policy. Special consideration will be given to the current presidential and legislative campaigns.
