Watch: Swing States Project staffer on coverage of gaffes, changes at GOOD, and Mitt’s Mormonism

Campaign coverage is "turning the candidates into sitcom characters"

Earlier this week, Anna Clark, Michigan correspondent for CJR’s Swing States Project, appeared on’s The Posner Show. Below, watch Clark and Sarah Posner’s lively fifty-plus-minute conversation, in which they touch on topics recently addressed by CJR, including: last week’s changes at GOOD; excessive coverage of candidates’ “gaffes;” reporting on Romney’s Mormonism, which Posner calls “dissatisfying;” and the enduring gender gap on op-ed pages and elsewhere.
