How has cable news coverage changed how voters learn about the policy platforms of candidates?
Voters rely on comedy shows to get their information.
Voters are rarely aware of a candidate's policy preferences because the media focuses more on appearances and the public campaign than on specific issues.
Major news networks are flooded with misinformation about candidates and voters cannot distinguish between legitimate sources and "fake news."
Nightly news coverage is so thorough with a candidate's policy preferences that voters are over-informed.
News programs only focuses on a candidate's appearance leaving voters in the dark on policy preferences.
