Gearing up for the 2012 election, the Columbia Journalism Review has launched a project monitoring key swing states, covering the presidential candidates and media coverage of the election. Focusing on campaign finance, political spending, and misinformation, CJR has identified their target swing states as Nevada, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Michigan, Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and Iowa.
