Bias in the news : network television coverage of the 1972 election campaign by C. Richard Hofstetter( Book )

11 editions published in 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the coverage of the 1972 presidential election campaign by the three major television networks, focusing on weekday-evening news broadcasts from 10 July to 6 November 1972. The study's two objectives are to identify and explain discernible patterns of campaign news coverage and to show how these patterns relate to the candidates, issues, parties, and campaign activities, how they relate to each of the networks, and how they persist or vary as the campaign progresses. Chapter topics include considerations for the study's design; individual network coverage of the candidates, the issues, and the political parties during the 1972 campaign; ratings and themes as alternative techniques of analysis; specific issues and sources in news coverage; and conclusions from the study. Thirty-six tables of data illustrate the text. (Rl)

Communication media and perceptions of undocumented immigrants : the case of San Diego by C. Richard Hofstetter( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A telephone survey of 500 adults in the San Diego, California, area was conducted to examine the role of mass media in shaping views of the respondents toward undocumented immigrants from Mexico. The sample, designed to reflect all adults in the area, was distorted somewhat by a refusal rate of approximately 30%. The results showed that the most significant contribution of media coverage concerning undocumented immigrants was to increase levels of information about Mexico and about the immigrants. Print media were found to have the greatest influence on increasing information, discussion was the next most influential, and television programing was the least influential. Although exposure to media was associated with level of information, the media apparently had no influence on the content of either perceptions or attitudes about immigrants. The findings suggest that the media increased both information and cognitive consistency in relation to undocumented immigrants, but did not change basic evaluations or perceptions about them. (Fl)

Biased News in the 1972 Campaign: A Multi-Media Analysis by C. Richard Hofstetter( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this study is to present systematic findings concerning bias in tv news coverage of the 1972 presidential campaign and to describe the kinds of coverage that the candidates and parties received during the campaign. News about the election was analyzed from weekday network evening news programs, ap day and night wire coverage, a daily newspaper that endorsed McGovern ("Washington Post"), and a daily that endorsed Nixon ("Chicago Tribune"). The first section of the document is an introduction to the study. The second section is a listing of the findings of the study. The third section examines perceptions of bias in the news including bases of perceptions of bias in television news, partisan choice and perceived bias, and cognitions about news and perceived bias. The final section is a discussion of the findings: structural bias was clearly evident in much of the analysis; each candidate benefited from the way sources of news were handled; if either candidate gained from issue coverage during the 1972 election, it was Nixon; issues were covered differently on television and in newspapers; and perceptions of biased tv news coverage had a variety of effects on voting behavior and attitudes about the medium.

News Bias in the 1972 Campaign: A Cross-Media Comparison. JournalismMonographs No. 58 by C. Richard Hofstetter( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The television networks nightly news coverage of the 1972 Presidential campaign was examined between July 10 and November 6, 1972 to assess the nature and impact of political bias in news coverage. The campaign news coverage of two newspapers and one wire service was also compared with respect to the content and length of each medium's news about the candidates, parties, and political issues to discern differences in the ways that the three media handled their news reports of the campaign. The types of bias investigated were those involved in the news selection process: whether the news was selected because of the peculiar characteristics of the medium (structural bias); because of influence by particular situations, such as political issues (situational bias); or because of the political prejudices of news personnel (political or partisan bias). The analysis showed that structural bias was clearly evident in much of the coverage; newspapers provided greater depth and included greater complexity in their campaign stories, while television news was biased toward visually exciting campaign events easily covered by film crews. No clear evidence, however, was found to suggest that the news coverage by any medium was situationally or politically biased. (Rl)

Assessing adult literacy by telephone by Thomas G Sticht( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recently, several industrialized nations have engaged in extensive and expensive assessments of adult literacy using door-to-door surveys and tests of "functional" reading. A study examined the use of simple checklists of author's names, magazine titles, famous people's names, and vocabulary works used earlier by West, Stanovich and Miller (1993) to sample adults' declarative knowledge by telephone. Data were derived from telephone interviews with 538 randomly selected adults residing in the San Diego, California, metropolitan area, and by a survey mailed to a subsample of 280 of these adults who agreed to participate (about 50 percent of the surveys were returned). Analyses revealed strong relationships among checklist knowledge (r = .80) when assessed either by listening (telephone) or by reading (mailed surveys). A comparison of findings using the telephone methodology with that of the recent U.S. Department of Education's National Adult Literacy Survey (nals) showed that all major relationships of literacy to education, age, gender, occupation, income, ethnicity, father's and mother's education that have been found in the nals and other literacy surveys over the past 75 years were found with the telephone method. Given the much lower cost of telephone versus door-to-door surveys (less than one-sixth the cost), the results suggest that the assessment of adult literacy by telephone is a promising and cost-effective method that should be further developed as a means of monitoring national progress toward the achievement of greater levels of adult literacy, as well as other important aspects of adult knowledge development, such as acculturation for immigrants and technical knowledge for vocational and professional education.
