On Oct. 31, the IU News and Media Team was contacted by a reporter at Nashville’s National Public Radio affiliate, WPLN, who was looking for an expert who could discuss media coverage of a controversial state constitution amendment on the ballot that placed restrictions on abortions in Tennessee. Both sides of the debate had been holding a series of news conferences but otherwise there was little news connected to the amendment. The reporter wanted someone to explain the media’s role and arrangements were made for her to interview Tony Fargo, an associate professor of journalism in the IU Media School and director of the Center for International Media Law and Policy Studies. The interview aired on Nov. 3, one day before the election.
