Matthew Levendusky is assistant professor of political science at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of The Partisan Sort: How Liberals Became Democrats and Conservatives Became Republicans, also published by the University of Chicago Press. He lives in Philadelphia.
"With How Partisan Media Polarize America, Matthew Levendusky argues persuasively that partisan media matter to political attitudes and behavior-and that their influence extends far beyond the relatively few people who actually watch such programs. This is an important contribution to a topic that is critical to understanding the present and future of political communication in America, and Levendusky brings together rigorous research with lively prose and compelling anecdotes."
