9780313382789: Politics on Demand: The Effects of 24-Hour News on American Politics (New Directions in Media)

This riveting book provides a nonpartisan examination of how the technological changes and financial imperatives of the media have led to an entertainment-driven news system poorly suited to report on American politics.


· Interviews with C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb, Time magazine's TV critic James Poniewozak, Saturday Night Live Weekend Update head writer Alex Baze, and others shed light on today's media

· A chronology examines the technological progression of the American media and the financial developments of media corporate ownership over the past 50 years

Book Description:

In the modern media age, Comedy Central produces news programming, talk radio entertainers are considered political experts, and the Internet substantiates any false rumor with "evidence." Politicians have to bowl, throw back shots, and make fun of themselves for the cameras in their quests for elected office. The time is surely ripe for a lively discussion about the role of the media in American politics.

About the Author:

Alison D. Dagnes, PhD, is associate professor of political science at Shippensburg University, Shippensburg, PA.
