The media is gearing up for the 2022 election by focusing on democratic issues
A television reporter assigned to “democracy issues” would have a quiet time on election night sets, occasionally talking about broken voting machines at a polling station or two.
Not so in 2022.
Between suffragettes and threats to voting rights, news organizations have pressed the pulse. It will continue next Tuesday, taking shape with coverage plans for midterms.
CBS News It will have its first “democracy desk” to look at how law enforcement is dealing with those issues and threats. NBC NewsThe “Vote Monitoring Unit” looks into election security and misinformation. ABC News has assigned a team of Don Abrams, Pierre Thomas, Terry Moran and Kate Shaw to the title.
Newsgroups, mindful of public suspicion of journalists, promise transparency in their own operations.
“Because there’s a definite disinformation campaign, there’s an effort to sow confusion, one of the most important things we can do is stick to the facts,” said CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell.
Following the precedent set by the 2018 midterms, broadcast networks will set aside their entire prime-time schedules to follow the action. CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC will have wall-to-wall coverage. There are plenty of online options for those who don’t do it on a screen.
Expect surprises. Pre-election polls make for a combustible night, with control of the House and Senate and the lingering question of whether any politician will take Donald Trump’s example from 2020 and not accept the results.
