John G. Geer on On the Media

book coverAre negative campaign ads bad for voters and the democratic process? The conventional wisdom says yes, but John G. Geer’s in-depth analysis of negative political ads from 1960 to 2004 argues that the conventional wisdom is wrong.
Geer appeared on the public radio program On the Media a few days ago to talk about his book In Defense of Negativity: Attack Ads in Presidential Campaigns. Listen to the audio of the program segment.
