Despite concerns that downsizing has left the news media diminished in their ability to report big stories, news outlets have rarely been more ambitious than they are today covering one of the biggest in decades -- the race for the White House. Much has been written this year about 24/7 cable news channels and their wall-to-wall coverage of the candidates. But CNN, MSNBC and Fox are not the only news operations that are committing more resources than ever to politics -- and offering voters more information than during any other election in American history. As Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama head into the home stretch of their Democratic primary showdown in Pennsylvania on April 22, a wide range of outlets -- from national to regional and local, in new and old media -- are going further than ever to bring viewers, listeners and readers the story.
