The nightly news nightmare : television's coverage of U.S. presidential elections, 1988-2004 by Stephen J Farnsworth( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the 1988 presidential election and now updates through 2004, The Nightly News Nightmare shows how network news coverage of what is arguably the nation's most important political event has declined. Through extensive analysis of news content from the Big Three and Fox, acclaimed media scholars Stephen J. Farnsworth and S. Robert Lichter compare what the candidates said with what the networks say they said and judge the disparity a nightmare. The authors go onto suggest that perhaps the candidates themselves do a better job of portraying the campaigns than those who used to be the trusted network guardians of the news. While the amount of news coverage of the Bush-Kerry race marked an improvement compared to previous elections, Farnsworth and Lichter also point out that, in other ways, things were even worse in 2004
The mediated presidency : television news and presidential governance by Stephen J Farnsworth( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The centerpiece of this book is a content analysis that compares news coverage of the first year of the Reagan, Clinton, and George W. Bush administrations. This analysis was developed from a study originally commissioned by the Council for Excellence in Government (CEG) as part of its ongoing Government in the News program. The Council is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to improve the performance of government and government's place in the lives and esteem of American citizens. One of its principal goals is to increase citizen confidence and participation in government through better understanding of government and its role
Spinner in chief : how presidents sell their policies and themselves by Stephen J Farnsworth( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few writers have dissected presidential communication as deftly as Stephen Farnsworth does in Spinner in Chief. Through riveting cases and persuasive evidence and argument, Farnsworth provides one of the best assessments yet of how, and how fully, presidents control the nation's political agenda. His findings are sobering."--Review from back cover
Political support in a frustrated America by Stephen J Farnsworth( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public confidence and trust in government is low these days. Farnsworth pinpoints this disappointment to shifting expectations of what, exactly, government should do. Politicians were once expected to maintain economic growth, but in our post-scarcity era most citizens expect them to provide services - such as welfare or environmental -that are often contentious. Enlarging the scope of local political empowerment will increase public support by making politics more approachable and responsive
The global president : international media and the US government by Stephen J Farnsworth( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Global President: International Media and the US Government, scholars Stephen J. Farnsworth, S. Robert Lichter, and Roland Schatz provide an expansive international examination of news coverage of US political communication and the roles that the US government and the presidency play in an increasingly communicative and interconnected political world. This comprehensive yet concise text will engage and inform students in many intersecting disciplines, as it includes analyses of not just the presidency but also US foreign policy and contemporary political media. The media that have developed in order to keep pace with the headwinds of political change are being asked more and more to adapt to and enhance the ways in which policymakers, voters and students make sense of the process of governing. The realities of an ever-changing political landscape are magnified nowhere more greatly than in the realm of foreign policy, and the stakes surrounding the need for effective communication skills are no higher than at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, because when the voices of the US government speak, the world is listening. This book provides students a perfect entry point into the complex and amorphous relationship between media and government, as well as where that relationship has been and where it looks to be heading in the future."--Back cover

In The Global President: International Communication and the US Government, scholars Stephen J. Farnsworth, S. Robert Lichter and Roland Schatz provide an expansive international examination of news coverage of US political communication, and the roles the US government and the Presidency play in an increasingly communicative and interconnected political world. This comprehensive yet concise text will engage and inform students in many intersecting disciplines, as it includes analyses of not just the Presidency, but US foreign policy and contemporary political media itself. The media developed to keep pace with the headwinds of political change are being asked more and more to adapt to and enhance the ways in which policy-makers, voters, and students make sense of the process of governance. The realities of an ever-changing political landscape are magnified nowhere more greatly than in the realm of foreign policy, and the stakes surrounding the need for quality communicational skills are no higher than at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue because - when the voices of the US government speak - the world is listening. This book provides students a perfect entry point into the complex and amorphous relationship between media and government, where that relationship has been, and where it looks to be heading in the future"--Publisher's description
