This text will help you learn how to think politically by providing you with analytical tools that can sharpen your understanding of American politics.

Informing the news : the need for knowledge-based journalism by Thomas E Patterson( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the journalist Walter Lippmann noted nearly a century ago, democracy falters "if there is no steady supply of trustworthy and relevant news." Today's journalists are not providing it. Too often, reporters give equal weight to facts and biased opinion, stir up small controversies, and substitute infotainment for real news. Even when they get the facts rights, they often misjudge the context in which they belong. Information is the lifeblood of a healthy democracy. Public opinion and debate suffer when citizens are misinformed about current affairs, as is increasingly the case. Though the failures of today's communication system cannot be blamed solely on the news media, they are part of the problem, and the best hope for something better

Globalization : the paradox of organizational behavior : terrorism, foreign policy, and governance by Meshack M Sagini( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization: The Paradox of Organizational Behavior is an excellent resource for undergraduate and graduate students, professors, policy makers, and the intelligentsia worldwide. Sagini explores the text's major themes using historical, materialistic, and imperialistic factors. The globalization movement is shaped by economic, political, technological, and cultural forces that transform human collectivities. Instability and related concomitant issues such as disease, energy security, and terrorism challenge the reconstructive role of internal and external factors in foreign policy decision-making. The implications of the global forces on the divided world of gated communities, urban and village ghettos, national borders, and cultural decay could be far-reaching if leaders fail to redesign and implement effective governance models

Televised Presidential Campaign Impact on Voters: 1972 Panel, Syracuse, New York by Thomas E Patterson( )

4 editions published between 1972 and 1984 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major purpose of this study was to investigate television's impact on voters during a presidential campaign. Of particular interest were the effects of television news and televised political advertising on people's political images and information. The questionnaires centered on people's uses of television and their candidate and issue orientations. Respondents also were asked about orientations, such as party loyalty, which, while unlikely to be influenced directly by television, might mediate communication effects. The study is designed as a panel, with three pre-election personal interviews and one post-election telephone interview conducted with a random sample of adults living in the Syracuse, New York, metropolitan area. In the first survey in early September, 731 respondents were interviewed, 650 of these were reinterviewed in early October, and again in early November, just before election day. Finally, 676 of the original 731 respondents were contacted for the brief post-election telephone interview. The data is organized in one file containing all four surveys in a single record for each respondent
Presidential Campaign Impact on Voters: 1976 Panel, Erie, Pennsylvania and Los Angeles by Thomas E Patterson( )

3 editions published in 1984 in Undetermined and No Linguistic content and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study's purpose was to assess the impact of a presidential election campaign, particularly the media campaign, on the electorate. In order to do so, a panel survey was administered in several waves to the same respondents over the course of the 1976 presidential campaign year. Two samples of randomly selected adults, one each from the metropolitan areas of Los Angeles, California, and Erie, Pennsylvania, were contacted for five personal interviews: in February, before the first primary was held, in April, during the early primaries, in June, during the late primaries, in August, during the conventions, and in October, before the general election. In addition, half the sample was interviewed by telephone after the first televised presidential debate and the other half interviewed after the second debate. Respondents were also interviewed by telephone after the election to determine whether they had voted and for whom. The surveys contained batteries of questions about each respondents's media use, such as exposure to national news, attention to this news, and interest in election coverage in particular. The surveys also provided measures of public orientations that might have been affected by the campaign, such as voting preferences, candidate images
Young people and news : a report from the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University by Thomas E Patterson( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a national survey of 1800 randomly sampled teens, young adults, and older adults, this report examines the amount of daily news consumed by young people. The evidence shows that young Americans are estranged from the daily newspaper and rely more heavily on television than on the Internet for their news. A few decades ago, there were not large differences in the news habits and daily information levels of younger and older Americans. Today, unlike most older Americans, many young people find a bit of news here and there and do not make it a routine part of their day
