The Ideal of Conversation in the Study of Mass Media.
Schudson, Michael
Communication Research--An International Quarterly, v5 n3 p320-29 Jul 1978
Examines the "ideal of conversation," and demonstrates that most actual conversation rarely achieves the "ideal." Argues that the rise of mass media is responsible for making ideal conversation more realizable, however, by making talk between men and women, and adults and children, more egalitarian and spontaneous.
