Survey of broadcast journalism, 1970-1971 : a state of siege by Marvin Barrett( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major topic is the running battle between news media and the government, as reflected in documentary exposes like "The Selling of the Pentagon,""Migrant," and "Banks and the Poor." The best examples of broadcast journalism during the year are reviewed, along with the response they got from the press, the government, and the public. These documentaries point up the pressure public television is under from the government and contributors and that commercial television is under from advertisers not to show "sensitive" subjects. A chapter is devoted to recent developments in cable television. Three supplementary essays discuss the inevitable bias of television, gaining access to media as a result of the fairness doctrine, and women on the air. The text of "The Selling of the President" is included. (Jk)

The future of news and public affairs broadcasting and cable TV : a report prepared for the Sloan Commission on Cable Communications by Marvin Barrett( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two stipulations would allow cable television to provide the best in journalism, informational broadcasting, and the associated public services: first, complete freedom of access, and second, all cable programming should be chosen and paid for by the viewer. Over-the-air broadcasting has regarded informational programming as an "inessential item", to be disposed of whenever profits fail to increase. Television news has been superficial and has failed to take into account the needs and tastes of minority groups. Controversial informational programs have suffered from government criticism and the lack of sponsors. The costs of network programs are enormous. If cable television left payment and access up to the viewer, thereby eliminating the need for censorship, and used low-cost videorecorders and less slick presentation methods, many of the problems of over-the-air news programming could be solved. In order to achieve this goal cable should be granted a modified common carrier status, with a number of free public channels. The remaining channels should be reserved for whatever services the viewer chooses, with no advertising and little regulation beyond maintaining technological standards and keeping competition open. These regulatory preferences should be indicated before the disposition of power is firmly established and resistant to change. (Jy)
