Partisans Make the News
This chapter begins with two vignettes to illustrate the clashes between political elites and prominent members of the media. The first involves Fox News Sunday's host Chris Wallace's interview with former President Bill Clinton on September 24, 2006. The second involves CNN's Wolf Blitzer's interview with Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, on October 27, 2006. The chapter then discusses how political leanings influence not only where people turn for news but also their perceptions and memories of the news and considers the democratic consequences of partisan selective exposure. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
