The Mass Media Book.
Holmgren, Rod, Ed.; Norton, William, Ed.
This anthology consists of two major sections, "The News Media" and "The Entertainment Media." Both feature essays by critics, working professionals, and professional observers of the media. One aim of the anthology is to show the pervasive effect of the media on us. The section on news media comments on such topics as credibility gap, Vice President Agnew's criticisms, and the reporter as activist. The section on the entertainment media discusses topics such as film as high and low art, television and mass culture, the effect of popular art on the viewer, and censorship and pornography. (JK)
