How Ford won the campaign on the ground, and not in the media

Why the media got it wrong

Quote:
Mr. Granatstein also agreed with Ryerson University journalism professor April Lindgren's suggestion that, with polls handy, anecdotal evidence often gets short shrift.

"I think reporters have gotten away from trusting what they hear on the street because it's considered unscientific," Ms. Lindgren said.

But even the subtler signals of public intentions proved hard to read. Mr. Ford's overt decision not to court the mainstream media, and in some cases to shut writers out entirely, obscured what is often the best litmus test: the body language inside a leading campaign team.
