The Power of the Media

I think one thing textbooks do poorly is cover media - perhaps because it has changed so much in recent years.  This is a great article on how the media is influencing Ben Carson's rise (thanks Frank Franz).  It implies that if the media would back off Donald Trump, he would fall in the polls.  But Trump has a press conference before each speech and is proving that there is no such thing as bad coverage.

Below are the dueling ads from Trump and Bush and here is Trump's Twitter feed which is interesting to say the least.
