Delli Carpini, Michael X.; Williams, Bruce A.
Communication Research, v21 n6 p782-812 Dec 1994

Offers an alternative "conversational" metaphor. Describes a focus group project examining the relationship between television and public opinion. Presents initial findings supporting the usefulness both of focus groups methodology and of the conversational metaphor. (SR)
