Political Media Research Team is a 501 (c) (3), non-profit, non-partisan educational and literary organization that exists to research and report on political communication and the media's coverage of politics that affects the perceptions of Americans, the issues we face, and the subsequent impact it has on public policy in America.
Political Media Research Team was founded on September 13, 2012 and is based in Raleigh, NC.
On October 3, 1988, The League Of Women Voters withdrew their sponsorship of the Presidential Debates. Here is what they said was their reasoning.
"The demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American Voter. It has become clear to us that the candidates' organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity, and answers to tough questions."
Presidential Debates in 2012 are scheduled for October 3rd, October 16th and October 22nd. A Vice-Presidential Debate is scheduled for October 11th.
Go to our Issues page, and our coverage of the debates and you will see how the debates are just what the League Of Women Voters claimed 24 years ago...a charade!
