COMM 4320: Political Campaign Communication

Debate, Videos, Transcripts

Debate Schedule and Video

A caveat: Where I could find full video for the debates by their broadcasters or what I deem a reasonably trustworthy third party, I have linked them. (Debate video and transcripts are not kept in a central place on the web, nor is the full length video necessarily posted by the broadcaster.) A lot of debate video is on YouTube, but has been uploaded by users other than the broadcasters. I can't vouch for the uploaders, especially when they have usernames like NewtRocks or RonPaul4EVA.

Transcripts
Lexis-Nexis Academic (I would consider this the most authoratative source for transcripts.)

  • On the left hand navigation, click on News, then TV and Radio Transcripts.
  • Enter Republican and debate in the search boxes.
  • Specify the date of the debate you're interested in.
  • Check only the broadcast source for that debate.
  • Click Search.
