Stimulus Coverage Stressed Politics

Feb 23, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Television news coverage of President Obama’s stimulus package featured political commentators but few economists, the Associated Press reports. The Center for Economic and Policy Research said the media had “badly failed” to inform the public about what the stimulus plan means. The group said news organizations also didn’t keep things in perspective, focusing on criticisms of the bill that were a very small part of the pricetag, the AP reports.
