The political persuaders; the techniques of modern election campaigns by Dan D Nimmo( Book )

26 editions published between 1970 and 2001 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last 20 years, a successful election campaign has come to depend in large part on successful use of the broadcast media. As a result, media experts are part of most politicians' teams, and their strategies help determine the results of the election. Usually, themes or "images" are more important than issues. The techniques of mass persuasion are discussed here, with theories taken from social science research and examples from recent state and national campaigns. Although mass advertising drives election costs up, it is concluded that neither the public, the politicians, nor the donors really want to place a ceiling on campaign costs. Nor are safeguards against deception likely to be placed on media campaigns. (Jk)

Newsgathering in Washington; a study in political communication by Dan D Nimmo( Book )

17 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early twentieth century, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Walter Lippmann said that the presentation of truthful news lies at the heart of democracy. This volume stems from Dan D. Nimmo's conviction that opinion and policymaking are also significant, interrelated processes within any political system. A democracy poses problematic questions of the manner and means by which political ideas, opinions, and issues are transmitted throughout the body politic. In the United States, such communication is carried on primarily through the news media. Reporters and their sources interact to form crucial relationships linking citizen and official. Nimmo focuses on that interaction, using personal interviews with selected samples of Washington correspondents and their official news sources as his evidence. Nimmo's research examines the relationships that develop between news sources and reporters as each engages in political communication, indicates the factors most influential in determining such relationships, and suggests the implications such findings have for interpreting the tension that characterizes government-press relations in a democracy such as the United States. In this era of heightened attention to the role of the media in political discourse, reissuance of this volume could not be timelier. This study features a new preface by Daniel Pearl Award winner Georgie Anne Geyer. It should be read by all media specialists, communication scholars, and journalists, and will be valuable for those entering these fields as well
