The Intersection of Celebrity and Politics

Yesterday, Donald Trump announced he is NOT tossing his hat into the ring. It was considered breaking news. Today, we look at why his brief flirtation dominated the airwaves as long as it did, and what his impressive poll numbers – at the beginning of his "non-candidacy," at least — say about the role of celebrity power in politics.

We’re joined by Alan Schroeder, associate professor of visual journalism in the School of Journalism at Northeastern University and author of Celebrity in Chief: How Show Business Took Over the White House; and Erin O’Brien, associate professor of political science at UMass Boston.
