Constructing public opinion : how politicians and the media misrepresent the public( Visual )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The media regularly use public opinion polls in their reporting of important news stories. But how exactly do they report them and to what end? In this interview, Professor Justin Lewis demonstrates the way in which polling data are themselves used by media to not just reflect what Americans think but instead to construct public opinion itself. Addressing issues such as the role the media play in "manufacturing consent" for political elites, what polls really tell us about public opinion, and what Americans actually think about politics, the program provides a new way to think about the relationship between politics, media and the public

Tough guise 2 : violence, manhood & American culture (Abridged Version)( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this highly anticipated update of the influential and widely acclaimed Tough Guise, pioneering anti-violence educator and cultural theorist Jackson Katz argues that the ongoing epidemic of men's violence in America is rooted in our inability as a society to move beyond outmoded ideals of manhood. In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority. Along the way, the film provides a stunning look at the violent, sexist, and homophobic messages boys and young men routinely receive from virtually every corner of the culture, from television, movies, video games, and advertising to pornography, the sports culture, and US political culture. Tough Guise 2 stands to empower a new generation of young men - and women - to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior

Tales of sex : Screen reflections on sex, sexuality, and representation, 1996--2005 by Susan Ericsson( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation examines recent US films that locate sex or sexuality as a key narrative component and call attention to the impact of sexual representation on the culture at large. The study addresses how the films highlight the politics of sexual representation and considers how sex acts and sexual identity are portrayed. The years when President Clinton was in the White House through the George W. Bush administration have been a critical time of social change in the US where issues surrounding sex in society and the media have been fiercely discussed, continuing the culture wars debates about sex and sexuality that began in the 1980s. The dissertation asks how do dramatic narrative and documentary films use storyline content and formal qualities to comment on the cultural impact of sexual representations? Films considered are The Brandon Teena Story, Boys Don't Cry, The Education of Shelby Knox, Far From Heaven, Kinsey, The Laramie Project, The Lost Children of Rockdale County, Middle School Confessions, Quills and What a Girl Wants
