Setting the agenda : the mass media and public opinion by Maxwell E McCombs( Book )

42 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Across the world, the mass media strongly influences what the pictures of public affairs 'in our heads' are about. The mass media also influences the very details of those pictures. In addition to describing this media influence on what we think about and how we think about it, Setting the Agenda discusses the sources of these media agendas, the psychological explanation for their impact on the public agenda, and the subsequent consequences for attitudes, opinions and behaviour." "This new book will prove invaluable to students of media, communications and politics, as well as those interested in the role of mass media in shaping and directing public opinion."--Jacket
Contemporary public opinion : issues and the news by Maxwell E McCombs( Book )

9 editions published in 1991 in English and Italian and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the public opinion process with a focus on the role that the news media play in shaping public opinion. Although heavily influenced by the agenda-setting perspective -- the view that the news media define the important issues of the day and determine how these issues are presented -- the authors neither support nor refute this claim. They present instead a variety of contemporary scholarship integrated into a coherent picture of public opinion for a general audience
The news and public opinion : media effects on civic life by Max McCombs( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The daily news plays a major role in the continuously changing mix of thoughts, feelings and behavior that defines public opinion. The News & Public Opinion details these effects of the news media on the sequence of outcomes that collectively shape public opinion, beginning with initial attention to the various news media and their contents and extending to the effects of this exposure on the acquisition of information, formation of attitudes and opinions and to the consequences of all these elements for participation in public life. Sometimes called the hierarchy of media effects, this sequence of outcomes describes the communication process involved in the formation of public opinion. Although the media landscape is undergoing rapid change, key elements remain the same, and The News & Public Opinion emphasizes these basic principles of communication established over decades of empirical social science investigations into the impact of mass communication on public opinion. The primary audience for this book is students, both advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as members of the general public who want to understand the role of the news media in our civic life. -- Back Cover
The two W's of journalism : the why and what of public affairs reporting by Davis Merritt( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this timely volume, the authors explore public affairs journalism, a practice that lies at the core of the journalism profession. They go beyond the journalistic instruction for reporting and presenting news to reflect on why journalism works the way it does. Asking current and future journalists the critical questions, ""Why do we do it?"" and ""What are the ways of fulfilling the goals of journalism?"" their discussion stimulates the examination of contemporary practice, probing the foundations of public affairs journalism. With its detailed examination of factors influencing current jour

The techniques of behavioral scientists--field surveys, experiments, and content analysis--are becoming increasingly important to journalists as skills in the art of interviewing. This book is an introduction to behavioral science methodology for both prospective and professional journalists. Chapters are divided into three sections (strategies for reporting, methods of reporting, and the nature of news) and discuss social indicators for local communities, reporting and the scientific method, reporting surveys and polls, conducting a survey, sampling opinions and behaviors, mining community records and documents, interviewing, participant observation, journalistic field experiments, translating data into community information, and traditional and new concepts of the nature of the news. Subject, author, and source indexes conclude the book. (Jm)

The power of information networks : new directions for agenda setting( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The news media have significant influence on the formation of public opinion. Called the agenda-setting role of the media, this influence occurs at three levels. Focusing public attention on a select few issues or other topics at any moment is level one. Emphasizing specific attributes of those issues or topics is level two. The Power of Information Networks: The Third Level of Agenda Setting introduces the newest perspective on this influence. While levels one and two are concerned with the salience of discrete individual elements, the third level offers a more comprehensive and nuanced perspective to explain media effects in this evolving media landscape: the ability of the news media to determine how the public associates the various elements in these media messages to create an integrated picture of public affairs. This is the first book to detail the theoretical foundations, methodological approaches, and international empirical evidence for this new perspective. Cutting-edge communication analytics such as network analysis, Big Data and data visualization techniques are used to examine these third-level effects

Agenda setting in a 2.0 world by Thomas J Johnson( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores agenda-setting theory in light of changes in the media environment in the 21st century. In the decades since the original Chapel Hill study that launched agenda-setting research, the theory has attracted the interest of scholars worldwide. Agenda Setting in a 2.0 World features the work of a new generation of scholars. The research provided by these young scholars reflects two broad contemporary trends in agenda-setting: A centrifugal trend of research in the expanding media landscape and in domains beyond the original focus on public affairs, and a centrip
The future of news : an agenda of perspectives( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the future of news? That question takes on greater urgency with each passing year, and has triggered no shortage of controversy among journalists, scholars, and the public-some warning of serious journalism's imminent demise as traditional business models collapse, others anticipating its rebirth as networked citizens participate in the news process. What remains clear is that in our media shift from analog to digital, from one-way to increasingly many-to-many forms of communication, we need to rethink much of what we know about journalism-who produces it, under what conditions, and with what kind of impact in society. Through contributions from seasoned journalists and expert academics, this book tries to synthesize the key trends, patterns, and practices that are reshaping news in the digital age. The Future of News outlines the promise and perils of today's media environment, which features increased opportunities for citizen engagement through social networks and cheap digital tools as well as spiraling declines in news consumption and challenging conditions for professional journalists. This book doesn't predict the future, but rather sets forth an agenda of observations and questions to guide our thinking in this new age of journalism
