Using C-Span in the Classroom to Enhance Student Analysis of Ross Perot's Sensitivity with American Diversity During the 1992 Presidential Campaign
Schnell, James
Online Submission
The C-SPAN application to be described in this article is useful in the Cross-Cultural Communication and Mass Media courses. This application focuses on how we define what connotes sensitivity & insensitivity with diversity issues and how journalistic interpretation can affect our perception via mass media. Businessman Ross Perot rose from relative obscurity in the spring, 1992 and within seven months received 19% of the popular vote in the 1992 presidential election. His climb in public awareness was affected by positive and negative interpretations of Perot. One of the negative interpretations dealt with the belief Perot lacks sensitivity with diversity issues. This article addresses that phenomenon.
