Journalists themselves now play a smaller role in shaping these media narratives than they once did. Journalists are the source for about half as much of the statements about the candidates as was the case 12 years go. The campaigns, by contrast, have come to play an ever larger role in shaping these narratives. The candidates and their partisan allies are the source for nearly a third more of the personal narrative about the candidates than in 2000.

well yeah, if you allow unlimited political contributions to anonymous third parties who are can't be held responsible for the content of their messages, you're going to get a sh*tload of negative ads. it's gabe's law of internet anonymity brought to mainstream politics.
