The final months of the presidential campaign are confronting journalists with big problems in covering candidates, campaigns, and the new style nominating conventions.  We explore that with our guest, award-winning television political reporter Dave Bryan.  We also challenge the media to be educators as well as reporters and to guide a confused public through vote counting that may take many days, if not weeks.
