All My 2016 Columns on TV and Politics: Curated



NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2016 — The magic number so far: 33.

That’s how many MediaPost TV blogs I have written in 2016 as of this date, Oct. 20,  on the campaign and the candidates.

The 33 included previews and recaps of all three presidential debates (plus the VP debate on Oct. 4), morning-after commentaries on all eight evenings that comprised the Republican and Democratic national conventions last summer, and a host of other election-related topics at the nexus of politics and television.

All 33 are curated right here. Read them all with the links below. And since this story isn’t over yet, stay tuned — there’s more to come.
