Club podcast covers Trump phenomenon: What the media got wrong

November 1, 2017 | By Adam Konowe |

The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States came as a surprise to many, particularly in the mainstream media and political establishment.

But should it have been a surprise? Did the mainstream media miss a beat? And could they still be? Leonard Steinhorn, a professor of communication and affiliate professor of history at American University, believes that might be the case.

In the latest episode of Update-1, National Press Club Broadcast/Podcast team member Leone Lakhani speaks to Steinhorn to find out why.

Update-1 is produced by Mike Hempen. The podcast also can be heard on iTunes, Sticher and Tunein.
