Profiles from a Polarized America

These are stories from a class assignment that challenged students to write a profile of someone they disagree with politically.


These stories were reported and written through a journalism course on politics and government affairs reporting and edited by USC Annenberg Professor Christina Bellantoni. Annenberg Media student editors reviewed the stories and published them per newsroom guidelines.





Price Professor James Moore created controversy when he sent a school-wide email defending due process in sexual assault allegations during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanugh’s confirmation hearing in 2018.
