News that matters : television and American opinion by Shanto Iyengar ( Book )

Recount in detail of a series of carefully controlled experiments designed to measure the effect of television coverage of a given topic on an audience's perception of the relative national inportance of that problem
Going negative : how attack ads shrink and polarize the electorate by Stephen Ansolabehere ( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on both laboratory experiments and the real world of America's presidential, gubernatorial, and congressional races, the authors show that negative advertising drives down voter turnout - in some cases dramatically - and that political consultants intentionally use ads for this very purpose. In the 1992 presidential election, by the authors' calculation, over 6 million votes were lost to negative campaigns. Negative ads work better for Republicans than for Democrats, and better for men than for women; unfortunately, negative ads also work better in general than positive ones, so attacking has become nearly universal. Republican primary campaigns increasingly set the tone for our national general elections, and they do so with relentless attacks. Everyone, even a war hero like Colin Powell, is fair game, and few reputations can emerge unscathed. The result of such a bitter contest is that independent voters, who are disproportionately well educated and open minded, are repulsed by the entire system and have been converted to non-voting apathetics. We are losing some of our best citizens, and pandering to the extremists who remain

Do the media govern? : politicians, voters, and reporters in America ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This comprehensive reader is the first book dealing with the media and American politics that brings together the perspectives of academics, reporters, commentators, campaign consultants, and policy advocates. The contributions blend together the best social science research on political communication with the expertise of some of this country's leading journalists and political consultants. Unlike most other treatments, this volume covers the full range of research issues, including the forces that influence the production of news stories, the relationship between reporters and elected officials, the use of the media in political campaigns, the effects of news presentations on public opinion, and the increasing importance of the mass media in the policy process. This thorough book provides coverage of everything from the Gulf War to journalistic code and will be valuable for courses in political communication, public opinion, and related undergraduate courses. --Publisher

Language of photography ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Photographs have the potential to present powerful truths, or to create convincing fictions. This program uses case studies involving Iwo Jima, Elian Gonzalez, and O.J. Simpson to show how images can be manipulated to influence the way viewers perceive events. The ethics of photography and the positive and negative impacts of digital technology, which is steadily eroding the border between artistic and documentary photography, are covered."--Container
Persuasion, propaganda, and photography ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program addresses the emotionally manipulative power of photography by illustrating how commercial advertising has created an obsession with youth and physical perfection and can exploit viewers' fascinations with celebrity, sexuality, and violence. The video also demonstrates how photogenic people who adroitly use the visual media have come to dominate the political scene. Commentary is provided by Steve Luker, formerly a creative director with Publicis & Hal Riney; Shanto Iyengar, director of the Political Communication Lab at Stanford University; museum educator Julia Brashares; and others
Photographic storytelling ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program examines how photographers work with images to communicate stories and ideas and how viewers interpret those images. Message manipulation deriving from point of view, context, editing, superimposing, cropping, recoloring, and captioning are discussed. In addition, selective perception-seeing pictures through the filters of values and prejudices-is studied. Commentary is provided by Doug Nickel, curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Joel Slayton, of the CADRE Laboratory for New Media at San Jose State University; Shanto Iyengar, director of the Political Communication Lab at Stanford University; and others.

Political communication in China : convergence or divergence between the media and political system? ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is widely recognised that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) uses the media to set the agenda for political discourse, propagate official policies, monitor public opinion, and rally regime support. State agencies in China control the full spectrum of media programming, either through ownership or the power to regulate. Political Communication in China examines the two factors which have contributed to the rapid development of media infrastructure in China: technology and commercialization. Economic development led to technological advancement, which in turn brought about the rapid modernization of all forms of communication, from 'old' media such as television to the Internet, cell phones, and satellite communications. This volume examines how these recent developments have affected the relationship between the CCP and the mass media as well as the implications of this evolving relationship for understanding Chinese citizens' media use, political attitudes, and behaviour. The chapters in this book represent a diverse range of research methods, from surveys, content analysis, and field interviews to the manipulation of aggregate statistical data. The result is a lively debate which creates many opportunities for future research into the fundamental question of convergence between political and media regimes. This book was originally published as a special issue of the journal Political Communication."--Publisher's website
