This course will examine the behind-the-scenes details (strategies, personalities, power, and politics) that influence stories in 'The New York Times' about American political and governmental current events. With a new president and vice president, the news is likely to provide many controversial issues for lively discussion. In addition to 'The Times', the 'Washington Post', 'CNN', and 'NPR' radio transcripts will be our sources for breaking stories. Students should come to class prepared to ask hard questions and actively and respectfully participate in class discussion.
