One presidential candidate came to Fresno and in The Bee received two front pages and four inside pages of coverage reported by five journalists. Another candidate came to town and received one front page and one inside page of coverage reported by one journalist. A third presidential candidate received three front pages and two inside pages of coverage.
The media has the ability to influence the outcome of an election just by drawing attention to a candidate. Attention matters. Caution: Don’t be fooled by the amount of coverage a candidate or event receives in the media when deciding how to cast your vote.
