Those of us on the lookout for insights into social behavior must be impressed when a book strikes us as being powerful enough to shake firmly held beliefs in a single reading. Even as we explore the vagueness of social science, we unveil bias that prejudices how we think, what we teach. One bias in the social sciences derives from the influence of cognitive dissonance' invoking thoughts of message reinforcement, not opinion change, and suggesting minimal effects of the press. Author David Fan goes far in dissuading those of us who have fallen under the minimalist spell. His clear examination of the power of the American press on public opinion provides compelling evidence for the profound impact the press has on our thinking. Fan, a cellular biologist, parades an impressive array of data to support his contention that opinion can be measured by the application of his mathematical model to the content of national news reports. His findings confirm a clear connection between the content of national news and the results of national opinion polls. "Public Relations Review" This incisive examination of the power of information in society uses a new mathematical model, ideodynamics, to describe social responses to information and suggests that public opinion can be swayed in a predictable fashion by messages acting on the populace. In addition to mathematical modeling, this book also introduces a new method for computer content analysis able to score text for its support of different viewpoints. The method is highly flexible and adaptable, yielding great precision for any topic in any language. Although previous work has indicated that the press is able to set the agenda with regard to public opinion, this book is unique in demonstating that the press also is able to mold opinion within that agenda. Fan begins with a presentation of ideodynamics followed by an examination of the ability of the mathematical model to incorporate previous theories. He then considers data applications and discusses the conclusions to be drawn from the work. The empirical testing uses the ideodynamic equations and scores from the text analysis to predict time trends of public opinion which correspond strikingly well with actual poll measurements.

The first of its kind in the field of rhetoric, this book examines important speech encounters in the political life of twentieth-century America. The essays focus on significant speakers who have delivered political accusations against their opponents and on the orators who, in turn, have delivered apologies in order to protect their political standing. The essays treat these speech encounters as oratorical confrontations. Both accusatory and defending speeches are used to illuminate one another and to provide unique insight into the outcome of the encounters themselves. Each essay concludes with a bibliography of research materials, sources, and locations of speech texts.

The author discusses the role of economic concentration in limiting public access to information and reducing opportunities for public discourse. Picard examines the government policies that have contributed to the erosion of democratic participation and have permitted the growth of large commercial press entities, unobstructed by anti-trust provisions. He relates recent public policy responses to this problem to democratic socialist ideology and develops a social-democratic theory of the press which draws upon ideas and policies found throughout the Western world. Picard provides a democratic framework for understanding the changing nature of media economics and state-press relations and offers proposals for achieving both a democratically functioning press and broader popular participation.

This text offers perspectives on media coverage of the courts. How accurate and unbiased is television and newspaper coverage of legal issues? The author looks at economics, the influence of ratings, and how accuracy is sometimes lost amid the often conflicting values of these two institues. He also examines the biases of both the courts and the press.

"Written in a clear and accessible style that would suit the needs of journalists and scholars alike, this encyclopedia is highly recommended for large news organizations and all schools of journalism." —Starred Review, Library Journal Journalism permeates our lives and shapes our thoughts in ways we've long taken for granted. Whether we listen to National Public Radio in the morning, view the lead story on the Today show, read the morning newspaper headlines, stay up-to-the-minute with Internet news, browse grocery store tabloids, receive Time magazine in our mailbox, or watch the nightly news on television, journalism pervades our daily activities. The six-volume Encyclopedia of Journalism covers all significant dimensions of journalism, including print, broadcast, and Internet journalism; U.S. and international perspectives; history; technology; legal issues and court cases; ownership; and economics. The set contains more than 350 signed entries under the direction of leading journalism scholar Christopher H. Sterling of The George Washington University. In the A-to-Z volumes 1 through 4, both scholars and journalists contribute articles that span the field's wide spectrum of topics, from design, editing, advertising, and marketing to libel, censorship, First Amendment rights, and bias to digital manipulation, media hoaxes, political cartoonists, and secrecy and leaks. Also covered are recently emerging media such as podcasting, blogs, and chat rooms. The last two volumes contain a thorough listing of journalism awards and prizes, a lengthy section on journalism freedom around the world, an annotated bibliography, and key documents. The latter, edited by Glenn Lewis of CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and York College/CUNY, comprises dozens of primary documents involving codes of ethics, media and the law, and future changes in store for journalism education.

Ralph E. McCoy’s Freedom of the Press: An Annotated Bibliography covered some four hundred years of press freedom in the English-speaking world and was hailed by a reviewer as "the most useful annotated bibliography ever produced on the topics of freedom and censorship in mass communication." This second supplement, covering the years from 1978 to 1992, contains more than 3,900 entries and follows the pattern and scope of both the original bibliography and the first supplement, which covered the years from 1967 to 1977. An annotated bibliography of books, pamphlets, journal articles, dissertations, films, and other materials relating to freedom of the press in the English-speaking world, the bibliography defines the word press generically to include all media of mass communications: books, newspapers, and other printed matter, but also motion pictures, recordings, radio and television broadcasts, and to a limited extent, stage plays. Annotations in this supplement are descriptive rather than critical, and both positive and negative statements on press freedom are included. Whenever possible the author’s own words have been used to summarize the work or to express salient points of view. Articles on the nature and effect of pornography that do not deal directly with press freedom but provide background information are included. The present volume is more selective than the original and the first supplement, particularly in covering news events. One or two reports are often used to represent a much larger number of articles available, thereby eliminating much duplication. The format of this volume, however, follows that of the earlier volumes: it is arranged alphabetically by personal or corporate author or by title where the author is unknown. To facilitate a subject approach to the work, a comprehensive subject index identifies topics, concepts, countries, individuals, court decisions, and titles of censored works.
