Mediated Political Realities

Mediated Political Realities

Description

This argues that most people learn about politics from information imparted by mass media and that our opinions are shaped by the sources of that information. The authors also contend that political reality is transformed, or mediated, into fantasy, and reality disappears. The authors examine television, radio, newspapers and magazines, film and sports and discuss the group phenomena of pack journalism, group think among decision-makers, religiously based political fantasies, and conspiracy theories of politics. This edition has been revised and updated to reflect current research.
