About the Author

Stephen Cushion is Reader at the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University. Richard Thomas is Lecturer at Leeds Trinity University.


"Thoroughly researched and well written, this is a major addition to the agenda-setting library, a nuanced, empirically grounded presentation of the key elements that define the political, media and public agendas during elections. For journalists, citizens and political communication practitioners, Reporting Elections is a comprehensive handbook for understanding elections and improving the electoral process. For scholars, it is an invaluable guide to gaps in our knowledge, identifying productive research areas for further explicating the links among the political, media and public agendas." Maxwell McCombs, University of Texas at Austin "Cushion and Thomas' cross-national treatment of 'air wars' during election campaigns provides lots of meat for scholars and students to absorb and ponder - about influences on their coverage, political and media actors' strategies and logics, explanatory concepts, available data sets and literature references, and issues for democracy, including 'post-truth politics'." Jay Blumler, University of Leeds
