  • Pundits, politicians failed to detect depth of Trump’s support

    The Boston Globe - 11/10/2016

    Some of the nuance of the story might have been lost in the media coverage. But Dan Kennedy, a journalism professor at Northeastern University, said it is not fair to say the press “missed the story.”

    “I read good, long pieces in several newspapers . . . on this left-behind generation of the white working class that was supporting Trump,” he said. “But it comes on a Sunday, you read it, and then it’s gone. It’s not top-of-mind, the way the day-to-day punditry and the latest Trump hot take is.”

    It is difficult, he said, to inject this kind of reporting into the “media echo chamber.”
