Selling war to America : from the Spanish American War to the global war on terror by Eugene Secunda( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the end of the 19th century, the relative skillfulness of the U.S. government's propaganda efforts have largely determined the American public's willingness to support the wars the United States has waged. The job of informing and persuading America to support its war efforts has become increasingly more challenging as media technologies, like the Internet and the instant global coverage of television news, reach into every American home. Selling War to America begins its examination with the U.S. government's campaign to instigate a war with Spain and ends with a review of the methods the government is using now to encourage support for the War Against Terrorism
Introduction to the history of communication : evolutions & revolutions by Terence P Moran( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Introduction to the History of Communication: Evolutions and Revolutions provides a comprehensive overview of how human communication has changed and is changing. Focusing on the evolutions and revolutions of six key changes in the history of communication--becoming human; creating writing; developing print; capturing the image; harnessing electricity; and exploring cybernetics--the author reveals how communication was generated, stored, and shared. This ecological approach provides a comprehensive understanding of the key variables that underlie each of these great evolutions-revolutions in human communication. Designed as an introduction for history of communication classes, the text examines the past, attempting to identify the key dynamics of change in these human, technical, semiotic, social, political, economic, and cultural structures, in order to better understand the present and prepare for possible future developments."--Jacket

Television genres, realism and codes of meanings: A case study examination of "CSI" and "48 Hours Investigates" by Michael Grabowski( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American commercial television traditionally has maintained distinctions between fiction, narrative-based programming and non-fiction news programming. Using the theoretical frameworks of Barthes (1974) and Fiske (1987), this study examines the erosion of these distinctions by exploring the extent to which fiction and non-fiction television make use of shared narrative codes. This study takes a case-study approach by examining the police drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and the television newsmagazine 48 Hours Investigates. The study begins by examining the economic, political, regulatory, technological and cultural contexts in which the programs CSI and 48 Hours Investigates were produced during the 2002-2003 television season. It examines how these programs represent reality, as well as how they differ from reality, in order to better understand the function of realism in television. The study questions how these programs situate themselves as members of separate genres as well as how they also work to blur genres. It reveals how the medium of television, as it functions within a commercial environment, constrains television programming and influences a program's narrative codes regardless of its genre. The study incorporates and updates theories of realism, semiotics, cultural studies, and medium theory. It explores the implications of blurring television genres, demonstrates the usefulness of narrative codes to denaturalize television texts, and provides insights to understanding the emergence of reality television

The image of Egypt in the New York Times, 1956, 1967, 1979 by Sonia A Guirguis( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study tests the validity of the political theory of the presentation of news through a comparative analysis of the image of Egypt presented by The New York Times and U.S./Egypt government relations in three time periods: the Suez crisis of 1956, the Egyptian-Israeli War of 1967 and the Egyptian-Israeli Peace Treaty of 1979. Such testing required an examination of changes in the image of Egypt and in U.S./Egypt government relations in the three time periods, and an identification of the themes which affected U.S./Egypt government relations to see whether they were reflected in the image of Egypt
An analysis of the relationship between the Sherman Antitrust Act and the development of American network television by Sara-Ann Bermont( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine whether a law conceived and enacted prior to the development of a new technology can be used effectively to regulate that technology. For the purpose of this study, the Sherman Antitrust Act and the American network broadcast television industry were chosen as a suitable law and medium, respectively. The time parameters for this examination span the years from 1934 to 1979, framed by the enactment of the Communications Act of 1934 and the subsequent proposals which reflect the need for its rewrite as outlined in the Options Papers of 1977
The Miss America Pageant: A comparative structural analysis of the pre- and post-television event by Armando Riverol( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined television's role as an agent of change by comparing the structure of the pre-television Miss America Pageant (1921-1953) with that of the post-television Miss America Pageant (1954-1984). To determine which changes found between the two time periods were due to the influence of television, the data were analyzed using the Model for Analyzing the Structure of Television (MAST). This model was developed by the investigator based on claims made by Edmund Carpenter, Edward Jay Epstein, Neil Postman, and Michael Real about the structure of television

Political advertising on television: A critical analysis of the debate in the United States between the determinist and the minimalist perspectives by Salvatore J Fallica( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the role of the media in politics and especially in political campaigns has been and remains the focus of an enormous amount of research, within this rather diverse field there is the special area of political advertising on television that has only recently been getting significant research attention as a field of inquiry in itself
The history of the videocassette recorder in America from 1964 to 1988 : an Ellulian analysis by Eugene Secunda( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine the historical development of the videocassette recorder as an agent of change in network television viewing patterns and in the national television-advertiser community from 1975 to 1988. These changes were scrutinized in the context of four rubrics articulated by French media theorist Jacques Ellul concerning the introduction of a new technology to a culture
The ethical orientation of advertising executives: The relationship among ethical climate, sex role identity, and selected demographic and job variables by Diane Rutkow Persky( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The theoretical framework of the study was based on Victor and Cullen's theory of ethical climate, Sandra Bem's theory of sex role identity, and Lawrence Kohlberg's theory of cognitive moral development. The instruments that measured these variables were Victor and Cullen's Ethical Climate Questionnaire, Spence and Helmreich's Personal Attributes Questionnaire, James Rest's Defining Issues Test, and a demographic and job variables questionnaire developed by the researcher
Captains and corporals: A critical analysis of the debate in the United States between the neo-Marxist and the reflective perspectives on advertising by Man Kong Lum( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study concluded that, except for a few basic similarities, the two perspectives differed in most of the categories examined. These categories included the two perspectives' conceptions, assumptions, and arguments about the interrelationship between modern advertising (as a social institution, as a form of artistic expression, and as a marketing tool) and the rise of a consumer culture and mass consumption in the context of advanced capitalism or market economy. Except for detailed footnotes or endnotes and bibliographical data, no other standard, formal verification method or mechanism proposed or used by scholars from the two perspectives were found. The study concluded that no mutually agreed-upon criteria could be used to verify or refute the arguments put forth by the two perspectives. It was suggested that a genuine resolution of the debate between the two perspectives appeared to be remote
Advertising and corporate mergers: An examination of editorial coverage of the 1895--1904 industrial "trust" consolidation movement in contemporary advertising-trade publications by Stewart Alter( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The 1895-1904 "trust" consolidation period reshaped American industry in ways that had significant implications for the practice of advertising as it was then developing. In order to evaluate these influences, this study explored the impact of these consolidations directly as they related to advertising by examining the coverage of these trusts as this appeared in the major advertising-trade journals at the time. These trade publications have served as a key research source for advertising historians, frequently serving as evidence to explain how advertising was conceptualized and practiced. The five publications that were reviewed, particularly during the peak consolidation years of 1898-1902, were Advertising Experience, Fame, The National Advertiser, Printers' Ink, and Profitable Advertising
Television advertising and myth by David J Quinn( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To this end, the researcher first developed a hybrid concept of myth to serve as a basis for the study. Using this hybrid concept and various concepts dealing with the structure and content of television, the researcher developed a research instrument that identifies mythic themes and structures and selected characteristics of television commercials. The instrument was used to analyze thirty-three commercials chosen at random
Interpersonal skills of highly successful business owners in the graphic communications industry by Joseph P Truncale( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine the communicative and interpersonal effectiveness of executive leaders of privately-held companies in the graphic communications industry that have demonstrated sustained business success. The quantitative portion of the present study used three established research instruments: The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) (Bass, 1985), intended to assess the executive leaders' effectiveness; The Communicator Competence Questionnaire (CCQ) (Monge, et al. 1982) intended to assess the leaders' ability to communicate effectively with their management team; and, The Leader-Member Exchange (LMX) questionnaire (Schriesheim, Neider, et al. 1982) intended to measure the level of job sastifaction among management team members
["This week with George Stephanopoulos" for the last week of June 2015] by George Stephanopoulos( Recording )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This week with George Stephanopoulos" for the last week of June 2015. Jim Obergefell, a plaintiff in the recent same-sex marriage Supreme Court case, and gay rights advocate Evan Wolfson talk about the significance of Obergefell v. Hodges and its place among other high profile civil rights cases such as Loving v. Virginia and Brown v. Board of Education. Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee asserts that the ruling in Obergefell was "judicial tyranny" and that people with a conscientious objection to the ruling should not recognize the ruling. Huckabee says that South Carolina made the right decision regarding taking down the confederate flag from government property. ABC's Pierre Thomas and Bob Woodruff report on recent terror attacks around the world promoted by Daesh (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). Thomas and Representative Peter King (R-NY) comment on the recent attacks and the possibility of attacks on U.S. soil. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) asserts that he will win the Democratic primary because of people's frustration with income inequality.

ABC's John Donovan reports on modified shipping containers created by artist Amar Bakshi that connect people from other countries and allow them to talk with each other
McSorley's, New York( Visual )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

McSorley's Old Ale House, at 15 East 7th Street, is the oldest bar in New York City. Founded in 1854 by John McSorley, an Irish immigrant, its character and appearance has changed very little over the ensuing years. Perhaps the biggest change came in 1970 when it finally admitted women. This film is an affectionate look at the history and lore of McSorley's and its intimate links with the history of its neighborhood and that of New York City as a whole
Television's impact on selected traditional male institutions in Greece by Demetrios M Gemelos( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An assessment of the impact of television on the male social habits was made through a two-phase methodological approach. This included a survey based on a multi-stage probability sampling--addressing respectively 149 TV owners and 146 non-owners in the Athens Metropolitan area. It also included a separate "experience survey" of 48 Greek public opinion leaders-experts whose insights provided a view of the usage and an outlook of the future role of television in the Greek culture, tentatively suggesting that even though television presently appears incompatible with the Greek cultural environment, it will eventually take its place in it, albeit with no particular impact and without displacing any traditional leisure activities
