Harvesting minds : how TV commercials control kids by Roy F Fox( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Also, kids "blurred" one type of TV text with another, often mistaking Pepsi ads for public service announcements. Kids "replayed" commercials by repeating or reconstructing an ad in some way - by singing songs, jingles, and catch-phrases; by cheering at sports events (one crowd at a school football game erupted into the Domino's pizza cheer); by creating art projects that mirrored specific commercials, and even by dreaming about commercials (the product, not the dreamer, is the star)

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The killing screens : media and the culture of violence by George Gerbner( Visual )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores why there is so much violence on television and its effects on viewers. Addresses psychological, political, social, and developmental impacts of growing and living within a cultural environment of pervasive, ritualized violent representation. Suggests new ways of thinking about the negative effects of mass media on society, and discusses what can be done. Questions and ideas are based on the results of a 20-year ongoing study, the Cultural Indicators Project, by Dr. George Gerbner
Invisible crises : what conglomerate control of media means for America and the world( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hidden from public sight and mind today are invisible crises that threaten our democracy and existence even more than the crises we know about - or think we know about. These invisible crises include the promotion of practices that drug, hurt, poison, and kill thousands every day; cults of violence that desensitize, terrorize, and brutalize; the growing siege mentality of our cities; widening resource gaps and the most glaring inequalities in the industrial world; the costly neglect of vital institutions such as public education and the arts; and media-assisted make-believe image politics corrupting the electorial process. The contributors to this volume - exploring such unattended crises, analyzing why they are hidden, and focusing on the increasing concentration of culture-power that keeps them from view - maintain that a profound general crisis of social vision, public communication, and representative government underlies all of the invisible crises

The Mean World Syndrome : Media Violence & the Cultivation of Fear( Visual )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For years, debates have raged among scholars, politicians, and concerned parents about the effects of media violence on viewers. Too often these debates have descended into simplistic battles between those who claim that media messages directly cause violence and those who argue that activists exaggerate the impact of media exposure altogether. The Mean World Syndrome, based on the groundbreaking work of media scholar George Gerbner, urges us to think about media effects in more nuanced ways. Ranging from Hollywood movies and prime-time dramas to reality programming and the local news, the film examines how media violence feeds a fear-charged cultural environment that cultivates a heightened state of insecurity, exaggerated perceptions of risk and danger, and an appetite for hard-line and repressive political solutions to social problems. A provocative and accessible introduction to cultivation analysis, media effects research, and the subject of media influence and media violence"--Container
