Invited speakers included leading academic researchers from around the country, political consultants, representatives of the Federal Election Commission, media editors, and politicians, including Senator Bob Graham (D-FL). Professor Price spoke about the rise of cable news, politically charged entertainment media, the “blogosphere,” and political learning in the new electoral communication environment.
