USA Today: The Wall: Unknown Stories, Unintended Consequences.

From USA Today:

USA TODAY NETWORK launched today “The Wall: Unknown Stories, Unintended Consequences.” This landmark multi-media report examines in unprecedented detail President Donald Trump’s signature campaign promise to build “a great wall” on the U.S.-Mexico border. It reveals the challenges and consequences, including a NETWORK investigation finding that building a wall in mostly wide-open Texas could require disrupting or seizing nearly 5,000 individual parcels of property.

Take a look at the multi-media report: https://www.usatoday.com/border-wall/



Shorenstein Center /Harvard: Report on Network Sunday Morning Talk Show Content and Ratings, Comparing 1983, 1999, and 2015

Access the report: https://shorensteincenter.org/network-sunday-morning-talk-shows/

From the Executive Summary:

We studied the content and Nielsen ratings for interviews on the three network Sunday morning talk shows—Meet the Press (henceforth MTP), Face the Nation (FTN), and This Week (TW). We compared three time periods—1983 (MTP, FTN), 1999 (all three shows), and 2015 (all three shows). In order to insure apples-to-apples comparisons, for over time comparisons, we either restricted our analyses to MTP and FTN or analyzed the data with and without TW. For “overall” snapshots we included all three shows (MTP, FTN, TW).

Our goals were fourfold: (1) identify any discernible (sic) trends in the topics and types of guests featured on the Sunday talk shows, (2) identify any trends in audience ratings, (3) assess whether and to what extent trends in topics and guests correlate with audience ratings, and (4) assess whether, to what extent, and under what circumstances, the Sunday talk shows influence the subsequent news agenda.
