Prof. James Klurfeld essay on Brookings

James_KlurfeldSchool of Journalism Professor Jim Klurfeld  has published an essay on the Brookings website, Improving media capacity: Media must focus on policy not just politics.

“The problem with political reporting today isn’t only the communications revolution represented by the Internet and social media. The problem, at least in part, has its roots in Theodore H. White’s classic book “The Making of a President 1960.” White wrote so elegantly about the inner game of presidential politics, the tactics and maneuvering behind the scenes, that coming generations of political reporters have attempted to emulate White—in real time.”
