9780691137179: The Presidency in the Era of 24-Hour News


The Presidency in the Era of 24-Hour News examines how changes in the news media since the golden age of television--when three major networks held a near monopoly on the news people saw in the United States--have altered the way presidents communicate with the public and garner popular support. How did Bill Clinton manage to maintain high approval ratings during the Monica Lewinsky scandal? Why has the Iraq war mired George Bush in the lowest approval ratings of his presidency? Jeffrey Cohen reveals how the decline of government regulation and the growth of Internet and cable news outlets have made news organizations more competitive, resulting in decreased coverage of the president in the traditional news media and an increasingly negative tone in the coverage that does occur. He traces the dwindling of public trust in the news and shows how people pay less attention to it than they once did. Cohen argues that the news media's influence over public opinion has decreased considerably as a result, and so has the president's ability to influence the public through the news media. This has prompted a sea change in presidential leadership style. Engaging the public less to mobilize broad support, presidents increasingly cultivate special-interest groups that often already back the White House's agenda.


This book carries far-reaching implications for the future of presidential governance and American democracy in the era of new media.

From the Inside Flap:


"Jeff Cohen does an outstanding job of explaining how changes in the media fundamentally affect presidential leadership."--George C. Edwards III, Texas A&M University


"This is a stunning book on how the emergence of new media has transformed the president's place in our democracy. Jeffrey Cohen shows how the evolving nature of media stunts presidential power and causes the president to focus on narrow slices of citizens rather than the public at large. His findings accentuate the new challenges facing America's democracy in the twenty-first century."--James N. Druckman, Northwestern University


"A very substantial contribution to the field. The conception of the interplay between the media system and the presidency that is provided by the author is more accurate than existing ones. This book should attract a fairly wide readership."--Thomas E. Patterson, Harvard University


"This book tackles important issues in the relationship between the president, the media, and the public. It makes a provocative argument about how changes in the relationship between these three parties have affected the ability of the news to affect presidents and the ability of presidents to lead. The big picture of this book is really interesting and important."--David E. Lewis, Princeton University


"A very impressive piece of scholarship. Cohen addresses a very important question: how have changes in the way American citizens obtain political information, as well as changes in the nature of that information, influenced presidential governing strategies. Furthermore, the book is very well grounded theoretically."--David C. Barker, University of Pittsburgh


"This book makes an important statement. I have seen no other recent book like it in terms of historical scope or nuanced understanding of the multiple factors that condition presidential communication in the age of new media. It has much to commend it to both scholarly and general audiences."--Scott Althaus, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
