After an introduction by Mr. Ickes, Mr. Shogan talked about his book Bad News: Where the Press Goes Wrong in the Making of the President, published by Ivan R. Dee. The book analyzes media coverage of seven presidential elections since the 1968 campaign. Mr. Shogan described how the media have become enablers of the new power behind elections: fundraisers, interest and lobby groups, and pollsters. He says the media now obtains its information from these groups. He discussed the 2000 campaign and said it displayed the worst of the aforementioned qualities. Mr. Shogan took questions at the end of the program. close
