Fico, Frederick; Cote, William
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v76 n1 p124-37 Spr 1999
Contributes to scholarship on news coverage of political campaigns by examining how Michigan's nine largest daily newspapers covered the 1996 presidential campaign. Finds that stories were significantly imbalanced in favor of Dole. Finds that chances were nearly even that any encountered story was one sided, but two-sided stories were likely to be significantly imbalanced as well. (SR)
