HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA — Greetings from the CNN/Los Angeles Times/Politico Democratic debate here. I just spoke to Stevie Wonder, Diane Keaton and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa about the role the media plays in increasing or decreasing voter participation. This is a subject which nonpartisan research groups throughout the country have focused long and hard on.

A recent Pew Center on the States study noted that “about eight-in-ten Americans say they want more coverage of the candidates’ stances on issues, and majorities want more on the record and personal background, and backing of the candidates, more about lesser-known candidates and more about debates.”

Watch the video to see what Hollywood has to say about the horse race.
