The Wesleyan Media Project tracks and analyzes all broadcast advertisements aired by or on behalf of federal and state election candidates in every media market in the country. Since the 2010 election cycle, they have been providing real-time information on ad spending in federal election campaigns across the country, who specifically is doing that spending and which candidates are benefiting.
She is co-author of Political Advertising in the United States, a resource for journalists, citizens, students and practitioners highlighting trends in political advertising, why advertising varies and how shifts in the campaign finance landscape have affected the tone and sponsorship of messages on air.
