US elections and the media: How did we get here? In this special edition of The Listening Post from New York City we explore how a lack of regulation and absence of a strong public broadcaster in America has affected the coverage of US politics. As the 2016 presidential election campaign heads into the home stretch, many Americans are accusing their news outlets, particularly on the broadcast side, of not just reporting on the race for the White House - but actually affecting the outcome, through their commercial agendas, prioritising ratings and revenues over journalism and responsible reporting. So how did we get here? Measuring the totality of media coverage over the entire presidential campaign - the content, the tone, the ideology - is near impossible.

By the standards of the time, it was an eye-opening achievement.
