Research report | Article writing homework help

I need some assistance with a research report. 

 Once upon a time, there were presidential campaigns without social media or even cable television. In fact, in 1960, it was considered groundbreaking to broadcast the Nixon/Kennedy presidential debates on network television. In 2012, however, the Obama/Romney debates were broadcasted, analyzed and critiqued by news networks and social media. For this Project, you will research the history and development of mass media and write a report that tracks its use in presidential elections since 1960. 


You are a media consultant who has been hired by a startup social media company. The company wants you to write a formal research report that answers the question “How have changes in mass media influenced the ways people experience presidential campaigns?” In your report:

  • describe major milestones in the history of mass media between 1960 and today
  • compare and contrast the use of mass (and, as appropriate, social) media in the following presidential campaigns:
    • 1960: The Nixon/Kennedy Campaign
    • 2012: The Obama/Romney Campaign
  • identify how social media differs from mass media
  • argue how changes in media have impacted the ways people experience political campaigns
