Mass media and American politics
Doris Grabers classic text on the mass media continues a strong tradition of combining comprehensive coverage and cutting-edge theory. An ideal core text, this trusted and balanced volume explores the foundations of the American mass media system with a focus on political and technological developments. Graber shows students how the media inuences governmental institutions and functions, and in turn how the government shapes the way the media works and disseminates information. Her broad coverage has three focal points: the news medias role in both the public and private sectors; the medias impact on the attitudes and perceptions of ordinary Americans and political elites; and the ways in which the news media cover governmental institutions and political situations.
