Packaging the presidency : a history and criticism of presidential campaign advertising by Kathleen Hall Jamieson ( Book )
17 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,900 libraries worldwide
Now in a new Third Edition, Kathleen Hall Jamieson expands her authoritative analysis of political advertising, looking at the media campaigns of American presidents from the early days of the republic to the successful 1992 Clinton campaign. Throughout, an argument emerges that is subtle but persuasive; though often equivocal, and even downright sleazy, political advertising is vital in reminding voters of the choices at the heart of democracy.
The press effect : politicians, journalists, and the stories that shape the political world by Kathleen Hall Jamieson ( Book )
19 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,625 libraries worldwide
"Was the 2000 presidential campaign merely a contest between Pinocchio and Dumbo? And did Dumbo miraculously turn into Abraham Lincoln after the events of September 11? In fact, Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Paul Waldman argue in The Press Effect, these stereotypes, while containing some elements of the truth, represent the failure of the press and the citizenry to engage the most important part of our political process in a critical fashion. Jamieson and Waldman analyze both press coverage and public opinion, using the Annenberg 2000 survey, which interviewed more than 100,000 people, to examine one of the most interesting periods of modern presidential history, from the summer of 2000 through the beginning of 2002. How does the press fail us during presidential elections? Jamieson and Waldman show that when political campaigns side-step or refuse to engage the facts of the opposing side, the press often fails to step into the void with the information citizens require to make sense of the political give-and-take. They look at the stories through which we understand political events-examining a number of fabrications that deceived the public about consequential governmental activities-and explore the ways in which political leaders and reporters select the language through which we talk and think about politics, and the relationship between the rhetoric of campaigns and the reality of governance. They explore the role of the campaigns and the press in casting the 2000 general election as a contest between Pinocchio and Dumbo, and ask whether in 2000 the press applied the same standards of truth-telling to both Bush and Gore. The unprecedented events of election night and the thirty-six days that followed revealed the role that preconceptions play in press interpretation and the importance of press frames in determining the tone of political coverage as well as the impact of network overconfidence in polls. The Press Effect is, ultimately, a wide-ranging critique of the press's role in mediating between politicians and the citizens they are supposed to serve." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0612/2002009845-d.html.
Dirty politics : deception, distraction, and democracy by Kathleen Hall Jamieson ( Book )
12 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 1,383 libraries worldwide
Americans in recent years have become thoroughly disenchanted with our political campaigns, especially with campaign advertising and speeches. Each year, as November approaches, we are bombarded with visceral appeals that bypass substance, that drape candidates in the American flag but tell us nothing about what they'll do if elected, that flood us with images of PT-109 or Willie Horton, while significant issues - such as Kennedy's Addison's Disease or the looming S&L catastrophe - are left unexamined. And the press - the supposed safeguard of democracy - focuses on campaign strategy over campaign substance, leaving us to decide where the truth lies. In Dirty Politics, campaign analyst Kathleen Hall Jamieson provides an eye-opening look at political ads and speeches, showing us how to read, listen to, and watch political campaigns. Jamieson provides a sophisticated (and often humorous) analysis of advertising techniques, describing how television ads use soft focus, slow motion, lyrical or patriotic music (Reagan used "I'm Proud to be an American") to place a candidate in a positive light, or quick cuts, black and white, videotape, and ominous music (for instance, the theme from Jaws) to portray the opposition. She shows how ads sometimes mimic news spots to add authenticity (Edwin Edwards, in his race against David Duke, actually used former NBC correspondent Peter Hackis, who would begin an ad saying "This is Peter Hackis in Baton Rouge"). And Jamieson points out that consultants create inflammatory ads hoping that the major networks will pick them up and run them as news, giving the ad millions of dollars of free air time. The most striking example would be the Willie Horton ad, which the press aired repeatedly (as an example of negative advertising) long after the ad had ceased running. (In fact, it never ran on the major networks as an ad, only as news.). From a colorful, compact history of negative campaigning from Eisenhower to the present, to an in-depth commentary on the Willie Horton ads, to an up-to-the-minute analysis of the Duke-Edwards campaign in Louisiana, Dirty Politics is both a fascinating look at underhanded campaigning as well as a compelling argument for fair, accurate, and substantive campaigns. It is a book that all voters should read before they vote again.
Beyond the double bind : women and leadership by Kathleen Hall Jamieson ( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,344 libraries worldwide
"I can remember," says lawyer Flo Kennedy, "going to court in pants and the judge remarking that I wasn't properly dressed, that the next time I came to court I should be dressed like a lawyer." It was a moment painfully familiar to countless women: a demand that she conform to a stereotype of feminine dress and behavior - which would also mark her as an intruder, rising above her assigned station (as the saying goes, she dared to "wear the pants" in the courtroom). Kennedy took one look at the judge's robe - essentially "a long black dress gathered at the yoke" - and said, "Judge, if you won't talk about what I'm wearing, I won't talk about what you're wearing.".

8 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 961 libraries worldwide
Rupert Murdoch's multibillion-dollar purchase of the Wall Street Journal in 2007 was but one more chapter in an untold story: the rise of an integrated conservative media machine that all began with Rush Limbaugh in the 1980s. Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Joseph Cappella--two of the nation's foremost experts on politics and communications--here offer a searching analysis of the conservative media establishment, from talk radio to Fox News to the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal.

The Obama victory : how media, money, and message shaped the 2008 election by Kate Kenski ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 824 libraries worldwide
Barack Obama's stunning victory in the 2008 presidential election will go down as one of the more pivotal in American history. Given America's legacy of racism, how could a relatively untested first-term senator with an African father defeat some of the giants of American politics? In The Obama Victory, Kate Kenski, Bruce Hardy, and Kathleen Hall Jamieson draw upon the best voter data available, The National Annenberg Election Survey, as well as interviews with key advisors to each campaign, to illuminate how media, money, and messages shaped the 2008 election. They explain how both sides work.
The press ( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 758 libraries worldwide
This second volume in the series Institutions of American Democracy takes a close look at the role of the press in a democracy through a collection of essays by journalists and scholars. The essays examine the orientation of the press in a democracy, the function of the press in democracies, the government and the press, the structure and nature of the American press, and the future of news and journalism. The collection is aimed at correcting mistaken impressions about American media, inside and outside of the U.S., that mainstream conventional journalism is the only "legitimate" journalism; that journalism as practiced currently in the U.S. is the only valid model; and that American journalism is not affected by journalistic trends and developments in other nations. The essayists consider the role of the press as watchdog in a democracy, the importance of advocacy journalism in protecting the rights of minorities, alternative models for news delivery, the growing trend toward profit-oriented media monopolies, and the function of the press in wartime.

Spiral of cynicism : the press and the public good by Joseph N Cappella ( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 673 libraries worldwide
In Spiral of Cynicism, Joseph N. Cappella and Kathleen Hall Jamieson provide the first conclusive evidence that voter cynicism is indeed fueled by the manner in which the print and broadcast media cover political events and issues. The media's heavy focus on the game of politics, rather than on its substance, starts the spiral of cynicism that erodes citizen interest. By observing voters who watched and read different sets of reports for both a recent mayoral race in Philadelphia and the national health care reform debate - some saturated in strategy talk, others focused on the real issues - the authors show clear links between the ways in which the media cover campaigns and levels of voter cynicism.
The interplay of influence : news, advertising, politics, and the mass media by Kathleen Hall Jamieson ( Book )

It also reveals how the public exerts its own influence on the mass media in turn. After an introductory chapter on the nature and use of the mass media, the authors examine in turn journalism and advertising, with separate chapters on definition, persuasive strategies, and interactive influence. In the final two chapters, they turn to the world of politics, noting how politicians use both news and advertising to get their points across to the public. This edition includes updated coverage throughout including the Internet's role in media, politics, and advertising.

Presidents creating the presidency : deeds done in words by Karlyn Kohrs Campbell ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 537 libraries worldwide
Arguing that the presidency is not defined by the Constitution which doesn't use the term but by what presidents say and how they say it. Deeds Done in Words has been the definitive book on presidential rhetoric for more than a decade. In Presidents Creating the Presidency, Karlyn Kohrs Campbell and Kathleen Hall Jamieson expand and recast their classic work for the YouTube era, revealing how our media-saturated age has transformed the ever-evolving rhetorical strategies that presidents use to increase and sustain the executive branches powers. Identifying the primary genres of presidential oratory, Campbell and Jamieson add new analyses of signing statements and national eulogies to their explorations of inaugural addresses, veto messages, and war rhetoric, among other types. They explain that in some of these genres, such as farewell addresses intended to leave an individual legacy, the president acts alone; in others, such as State of the Union speeches that urge a legislative agenda, the executive solicits reaction from the other branches. Updating their coverage through the current administration, the authors contend that many of these rhetorical acts extend over time: George W. Bush's post-September 11 statements, for example, culminated in a speech at the National Cathedral and became a touchstone for his subsequent address to Congress.
