The Control Room: How television calls The Shots in Presidential Elections

By Martin Plissner

Touchstone, USA, 1999. Softcover. Good Condition. Who will determine what Americans are thinking when they cast their votes in the year 2000? Martin Plissner, former political director of CBS News, has played a central role in the network coverage of every presidential campaign since 1964. In The Control Room, he shows how all the elements of our nation's greatest contest -- the primaries, the conventions, the counting of the ballots --are shaped by the networks' struggle for supremacy in today's media-intensive age. From the earliest announcements to the final swearing-in, those inside the control rooms determine what Americans care about when they enter the polling booths and whom the country ultimately sends to the Oval Office. 244 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Media; Communications & Media; ISBN: 0684867729. ISBN/EAN: 9780684867724. Inventory No: 243785.. 9780684867724

The Murdoch Archipelago

By Bruce Page

Simon & Schuster, Australia, 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. This biography shows how Murdoch's approach to the acquisition of influence has benefited from being diluted across three different political cultures - the US, Britain and Australia - even in the media-saturated, global-village culture he has been instrumental in creating. And because of the physical and cultural distances between the three Murdochs has been able to influence political affairs with impunity. Is this a good thing? The book argues convincingly that it is not, and indeed that it does against fundamental principles of democracy. Arguing that the freedom of the press is not just in our interest but a matter of life and death, it builds a case against the dangers of media monopoly. 580 pages. Pages browned. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; Media. ISBN: 0743239369. ISBN/EAN: 9780743239363. Inventory No: 237821.. 9780743239363
