Levy, Mark R., Ed.
The purpose of the conference of journalists and social scientists "Covering the '76 Elections: A Dialogue..." was to provide an opportunity to discuss academic research on elections and to expose the social science community to the thinking and concerns of journalists. This monograph contains the conference keynote address by Henry F. Graff; five papers which were circulated in advance and which served as the basis for group discussion; and discussion summaries which explore some of the more important questions raised about the formal papers and provide additional insights into elections and political reporting. The papers are: "The Media and the Primaries--A Case of Distortion" by Richard L. Rubin, "The Audience for Political Reporting" by David E. RePass, "British and American Elections: Some Comparisons" by Penn T. Kimball, "Poll, Politics, and the Press" by Burns W. Roper, and "Those Other Elections" by Milton C. Cummings, Jr. (JM)
