The information machines; their impact on men and the media by Ben H Bagdikian( Book )

32 editions published between 1971 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 1,153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today we are on the threshold of a change in human communications which is more powerful and perhaps more significant than all past changes in the technology of information. The way men deal with each other and with the distant world is about to be transformed by a combination of the computer, innovations in the transmission of signals, and new ways to feed images into this system and to take them out. All informational systems, including the news media, will be more intertwined with each other than they are today." This book focuses on what the content of daily information will be, what form it will be delivered in, and how it will be distributed throughout the population. It considers what the most likely technologies are that will change the way the next generation receives its news, what difference it makes in human affairs to have daily events reported rapidly, what the audience for news in the United States is like, and what some of the pecularities of the news in this country are. Some of the research done for this project on the social, economic, and technological forces that shape today's news in print and in broadcasting is reported. Finally, speculations are offered on what the new technical systems will do to the content and form of news in the United States during the remainder of this century. (Author/SH)

Televised ombudsman by Kathleen Archibald( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proposal for a television program on which people in poverty areas could voice specific complaints with which the program would confront the responsible public or private agencies, request action, and follow up afterward. A skilled and fluent master of ceremonies, who is clearly not representative of established authority, would be essential to protect the program from becoming dull, repetitious, maudlin, irrational, or destructively hostile. Community groups such as the Sons of Watts or Venice Gangbusters could be used to check out complaints and the resulting action or inaction. Possible formats range from fairly elaborate documentaries to walking the street with a handheld camera and asking passersby, "What's bugging you?"
