Presidential Horse Race Coverage in Full Run

One of the early public journalism critiques was that elections were covered like horse races. Who is ahead, who is behind, leaving the idea of issues like poverty and health care almost as an after thoughts. Jay Rosen was one of those early critical voices. Now he is a back with the same critique as he has been in years past and with ideas to improve election coverage in this new Presidential season.

Indeed on my way to work this morning listening to NPR, I heard how McCain, an early front-runner, is drifting behind and Fred Thompson is moving ahead and well….you get the idea.

If you have some ideas on better election coverage, drop in at Rosen’s and post it in the comments session.
