Groeling, associate professor and chair of communication studies, is an expert on political communications and new media. He has conducted research on partisan bias on network news shows, media coverage of the “rally-round-the-flag” phenomenon and foreign policy, and the newsworthiness of online political news.
In his 2010 book, "When Politicians Attack: Party Discipline and the Media," Groeling argues that if Democrats lose the congressional majority in 2010, it may help President Obama win re-election in 2012.
He also is the co-author of the 2010 book of "War Stories: The Causes and Consequences of Public Views of War."
Groeling is also the recipient of UCLA’s Brian P. Copenhaver Award for Innovation in Teaching with Techology and an Apple Distinguished Educator, which recognizes educational technology leadership.
