During the semester, I shall post course material and students will comment on it. Students are also free to comment on any aspect of media politics, either current or historical. There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.
I just came across this Gallup poll on the media's coverage of Obama. According to the poll, 48% of Americans call the coverage "just right," 38% call it "not tough enough," and 11% call it "too tough."
