Eric Boehlert - Covering the US Primaries

From Sunday Morning, 7:08 am on 15 May 2016

The US 2016 election season has generated enormous interest in the US, but also around the world. There has been exhaustive comment on what's been happening, but have the candidate's been given an equitable amount of time? Commentator Eric Boehlert joins Wallace to dissect the coverage that has made this election an election like no other.

Eric Boehlert is senior fellow of Media Matters for America, a not-for-profit, research and information center that monitors and analyses coverage. Eric is the author of Bloggers On the Bus: How The Internet Changes Politics and the Press.
