Talking Politics : Choosing the President in the Television Age Hardback

Hardback

Description

Talking Politics presents the opinions of some of America's leading broadcasters and political commentators on the tension-fraught relationship between politics and the media.

In a series of personal, frank, and in-depth interviews, Tom Brokaw, Larry King, Robert MacNeil, Linda Ellerbee, Bernard Shaw, and others talk about the extraordinarily influential, sometimes volatile, relationship between journalists and political figures.

Providing a window onto political campaigns and governance, political analysts, journalists, and media figures address issues such as: * When does a tabloid story become news, worthy of the attention of the serious media * Can a talk show really give us a closer look at a candidate or is that closeness an illusion? * When can voters trust candidate images presented on TV-network news, talk shows, or otherwise?

In an age when the media has become as much a topic as the politicians it covers.

Talking Politics will be fascinating reading for all who follow politics. Talking Politics gives us an inside view of the relationship between journalists and candidates, one that shapes the way most Americans choose their president.
