One of the most profound features of the 2016 presidential race was the role that television and the media played throughout the process. At every turn, the perception the American people had of the candidates was dictated by the images, sound bites, and messages they received on television. Since television began to become a common medium in American households, it has played an intricate role in the election process. In this course, students will see how television has and continues to impact presidential elections. Students will also work together on campaign teams in an attempt to use television in an attempt to project an image of their candidate.
