Benoit, William L.; Currie, Heather
Argumentation and Advocacy, v38 n1 p28-39 Sum 2001
Compares data from a content analysis of the 1996 and 2000 presidential debates with news coverage of those debates. Concludes that the average newspaper story in 2000 only reported 7% of what the candidates said in a debate. Suggests that voters cannot expect to obtain an accurate or complete representation of presidential debates from media coverage. (SG)
