Study examines Midwest election coverage

Study examines Midwest election coverage:
"The study looked at more than 1,800 broadcasts on three dozen NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX stations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio. All five states have competitive campaigns for top state offices.

During the time period examined _ Sept. 7 through Oct. 6 _ the stations ran 1,629 election stories, and 56 percent of the broadcasts had at least one story primarily about the election, the study found.

TV broadcasts included in the study came from Chicago; Springfield, Ill.; Detroit; Lansing, Mich.; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; Madison; and Milwaukee."
