JOUR 180: FY: The Press and Obama 2.0: Covering the First 100 Days of the President's Second Term (3). First-Year Seminar. Prerequisite: Open to First-Years only. The news media have been intertwined with presidential elections and the challenges of carrying out campaign promises since our country's founding. In the 21st century, though, media messages bombard us around the clock from myriad new devices and sources. In this highly interactive seminar, students examine these messages through real-time monitoring of the news media's coverage of the first 100 days of President Obama's second term. (HU) Mitchell.
