Welcome to the text-based version of the Media & Democracy website! This project was created by a student intern working with the North Carolina State Archives through the Youth Advocacy & Involvement Office Student Government Internship Program. The main version of the site, found here, is an interactive Flash exhibit. This text-based version has been provided as a printer-friendly and accessible alternative.

This exhibit examines the interaction between the media and politics. It is not a history of the actual topics discussed in the media, nor is it intended to make a statement about any particular politician, organization, or ideology. Every attempt has been made to avoid a bias towards any particular ideology. Any percieved bias in this exhibit represents the bias present in North Carolina's history and, consequently, in the holdings of the North Carolina State Archives. This exhibit does not represent the opinions of the North Carolina State Archives or the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.
