TV violence and the child : the evolution and fate of the Surgeon General's report by Douglass Cater( Book )

21 editions published between 1975 and 1979 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book's chapters deal successively with television as an object of concern; Pastore's inquiry; the response of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare; the Surgeon General's advisory committee; what the researchers found in the lab, the field, and the broadcast industry; how the findings were communicated, and how the critics and the industry responded. The authors also consider the government's effectiveness when dealing with social objectives and the influence of citizen action on our communication systems. Their overwhelming conclusion, as reflected in the book, is that the nation's institutions are ill-equipped for recruiting expert talent, providing clear findings, and carrying out objectives in this area of delicate human concern
Television as a cultural force by Aspen Program on Communications and Society( Book )

13 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains nine critical essays on television as a cultural force. Television as dream and television as cultural document are the subjects of two essays. The popularity of "All in the Family" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" is assessed in terms of the moral messages and cultural factors in the shows which have a broad appeal to American audiences. Television melodrama and morality dramas are examined in terms of the truthfulness and fallibility of the characters. The last essay provides some thoughts on television criticism, and the book concludes with a 60-item, annotated bibliography with entries dating from 1952 to 1976. (ch)

TV and the thinking person by Douglass Cater( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the United States approaches the 25th anniversary of television in households, it is appropriate that more serious attention be given to the effects it is having on the individual, culture, and society. While few individuals expected television to have the immense influence it presently enjoys, it is both surprising and disappointing that thinking people have not given television the same critical attention that has been given to other media. This may, in part, be attributed to three factors: (1) thinking persons are left-brained in development and hence rely predominantly on that hemisphere which controls sequential, analytical tasks that depend on propositional thought; (2) the television is offered as a "free" product to the consumer, and it depends on advertising for its support; (3) the thinking person has yet to develop satisfactory measures with which to gauge television. Recent studies of the impact of television have been tentative and disappointing. Given that television technology will be extended in the future, it must be better understood and approached more creatively. There are three areas of priority concern. First, the examination of content requires more than hasty program reviews by daily columnists. Second, television's structure needs widespread analysis and debate. Third, more attention must be given to understanding the process of human communication and the way in which television programing is received by individuals. (Dgc)

Communications and society : toward a public philosophy by Douglass Cater( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rapidly advancing communications technology has moved the concept of speech far beyond that imagined by the authors of the First Amendment. Similarly, the power of the government to license, tax, regulate, and investigate has also increased enormously. Communications media have come to dominate the consciousness of Americans, and particularly news journalist have come to play a major role in the shaping of public opinion. For these reasons, the time has come for a reevaluation of the news media in order to: (1) make citizens aware of news gathering procedures, (2) test the validity of those procedures, and (3) examine whether the role assumed by American journalists is an appropriate one.

A first hard look at the Surgeon General's report on television and violence by Douglass Cater( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March of 1972 the Aspen Program on Communications and Society convened a meeting which brought together the Surgeon General, staff members connected with the Surgeon General's Report on Television and Violence, and social scientists. The purpose of the meeting was to evaluate the Report, which had just been issued. This conference report represents the efforts of two observers to interpret the reactions of the group to the Surgeon General's Report. It summarizes the background of concern over violence on television, discusses the genesis and composition of the Advisory Committee which undertook the project, describes the research conducted and the Report issued, treats its significance, and considers some approaches to public policy.

Anatomy of a government document : the Cabinet Committee report on cable communications by Douglass Cater( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excerpts are presented from comments made by the participants at a seminar held to discuss the Report of the Cabinet Committee on Cable Communications. The report was considered in the following three lights: 1) as a political document which seeks to strike a balance of interests to permit cable television (catv) to survive in a system heavily determined by legislative and regulatory decisions; 2) as an economic document designed to stimulate interest in an industry requiring heavy capital outlays; and 3) as a visionary document which excites the public's imagination and attracts new entrepreneurs. The comments are clustered around the following foci: 1) an overall assessment of the report; 2) the separation of cable ownership from program control; 3) the regulation of catv; 4) economic incentives; 5) programing; and 6) steps to be taken. A list of conference participants is appended. (Pb)
