Prof. Vavreck Talks Political Attack Ads on NPR

Political Science and Communication Studies Prof. Lynn Vavreck recently told host Warren Olney on his “To the Point” nightly KCRW/National Public Radio (NPR) program that so-called political “attack ads” can have a silver lining behind their cloud – especially when they provide voters with data they might not otherwise hear.

Prof. Vavreck is a regular media interview on the subject of U.S. elections, in part, due to the popularity of her co-authored book on the 2012 presidential race, “The Campaign ….”
