Student Journalists’ “Campaign Coverage ’08”

As election day nears, a college journalism initiative worth knowing: A team of students from the University of Utah and China’s Cheung Kong School of Journalism at Shantou University have been covering all-things presidential and political during the U.S. election season for an online endeavor they have dubbed Campaign Coverage ’08.



As the site describes the effort’s aim:


From gavel to gavel at both political conventions through Election Day, the Campaign Coverage ’08 team will file stories with over two-dozen media outlets in China and the United States. Hard news, human interest, opinion and election-year color, the team of international journalists from two starkly different political systems engaged in this historical undertaking will bring a unique and fresh perspective to political media coverage.
