Out d'Coup | Episode 14 | Democratic Primary Day, Bankrupt Trade Policies, & APSCUF Contract Fight. Special Guest: Glenn Richardson
But today is a BIG DAY! Today California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, and South Dakota hold their primaries and Caucuses. The California race is, of course, the big kahuna, with its 546 delegates at stake. But in this increasingly tense race on the Democratic side, today’s final Super Tuesday can’t be without controversy. Last night, the AP and then NBC and others reported that Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee based upon Democratic Party super delegate commitments. The fact that the media declared victory for Clinton before voters had a chance to vote today is leaving a sour taste in lots of people’s mouths. We’ll get into that with my surprise special guest on today’s Out d’Coup, Glenn Richardson!
Richardson is a Professor of Political Science at Kutztown University. He is the author of Pulp Politics: How Political Advertising Tells the Stories of American Politics published in a second edition by Rowman and Littlefield. He specializes in American government and political commmunication, especially campaigns and elections, political advertising, social media and news coverage of politics. His articles include "Visual Storytelling and the Competition for Political Meaning in Political Advertising and News in Campaign 2000," which earned the 2002 American Communication Journal Article of the Year Award; and "Ad Watch 3.0: Developing Audiovisual and Narrative Techniques for Engaging the Audiovisual Content of Political Advertising," in Poroi. He is currently working on projects focusing on the use of Twitter and politics and on political advertising.
Richardson is Chair of the state APSCUF Legislative Committee - APSCUF is the faculty union for the 14 state-owned universities in PA.
We’ll get Richardson’s take on today’s primaries, the tensions in the Democratic Party, and what’s happening in APSCUF’s current negotiations...faculty have been working without a contract for nearly a year.
