Reporter Survey Materials
My colleague and I are engaged in a study to better understand media coverage of Congress, and explore the often heard charge that coverage reflects a partisan bias on the part of the media.
Given the vehemence of some political candidates and many voters, we would particularly value the reporter's perception of Congressional coverage and of the Congress itself.
We would appreciate it very much if you would take a few minutes to answer the enclosed questions, and return them in the postage paid envelope. In order to pursue an accurate picture of media coverage, we would highly value your practitioners' viewpoint.
This is a completely confidential and anonymous process. We will not refer, nor will we record, any respondent's name in this project. This research project is funded by the non-partisan American Political Science Association.
We know you are very busy, and as a token of our appreciation for your time, we will be making a $5 donation to an educational scholarship fund
