In the few days since Donald Trump was elected all I hear from some of the media, from some of his surrogates, from some of his pals is, "he only said those disgusting and outrageous things to get elected." They keep saying we'll see a "different Donald Trump, a kinder, gentler Donald Trump in the Oval Office." WTF?
Election campaigns have always been fodder for journalists and media watchers to lament the state of political coverage in today's media. Recent research, however, suggests this horse-race preoccupation is misguided.
