Notes from Nash: Notes with John Sides – Politics and Journalism


Farouk Ramzan, Staff Podcaster

“Media is much more objective and neutral now than it used to be,” Professor John Sides says. Sides is the Chair of the Department of Political Science. He is an author of “Identity Crisis: The 2016 Presidential Campaign and the Battle for the Meaning of America,” “The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Election” and “Campaigns and Election: Rules, Reality, Strategy, Choice.” Sides and I talk about what makes for a successful political campaign, identity politics and the state of journalism today.
