Political Communication via the Media. ERIC Digest.
Aiex, Nola Kortner; Gottlieb, Stephen S.
Noting that critics charge that news reporting focuses on the superficial, personal characteristics of candidates and ignores the issues underlying elections, this Digest examines the relationship between the political process and political communication through the media. It addresses the power of advertising, cyberspace political communication, individual voter characteristics and the media, and public awareness and media coverage. (Contains 12 references.) (RS)
