    News from Nowhere Television and the News by Epstein, Edward Jay

    New York: Vintage Books - Random House, Inc., 1974. Previous Owner Markings; Light Creasing on Front, Rear Covers, Spine; Front, Rear Covers, Spine Lightly Chipped; Edges Lightly Soiled; Heavy Yellowing Due to Age. BOOK NUMBER: V-998. SYNOPSIS: More of the American public relies on television for its news than on newspapers or any other medium, and the three evening network news programs have most of this audience. In this detailed, probing examination of the evening news programs of ABC, CBS and NBC, Edward Jay Epstein analyzes the economic, political and journalistic structure of network news organizations and shows that internal corporate policy and budgetary requirements shape the directions of TV news coverage. The inescapable conclusions are that television news does not mirror reality, as its advocates like to claim, and that TV's essential aim is not to inform, but to excite the viewers enough to induce them to "stay tuned." Edward Jay Epstein was born in New York City in 1935, received his B.A. and M.A. from Cornell University, his Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University, and has taught political science at Harvard and at M.I.T. He frequently writes for The New Yorker on subjects of political interest and journalism.. Mass Market Paperback. Good. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

The portrait is inscribed "To Seymour Halpern / with best wishes / Rothermere".<p>Harold Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Rothermere [1868-1940] was a highly successful newspaper proprietor, owner of Associated Newspapers Ltd. He was a pioneer of popular journalism and, together with his brother Alfred Harmsworth, developed the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror, During the 1930s he was known to be a supporter of Nazi Germany.<p>The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.

Between 1841 and 1851 he worked as a journalist and associate editor for various newspapers, including Horace Greeley's New York Tribune and James Watson Webb's Courier and Enquirer. In 1851 Raymond convinced George Jones, who had also worked at the Tribune, to become his partner and publish a new paper that would report the news in a neutral manner. They co-founded the New York Times and Raymond edited the paper until his death. Raymond was a member of the New York State Assembly in 1850 and 1851 and was elected Speaker in 1851. A member of the Whig party's northern radical anti-slavery wing, he was nominated for Lieutenant Governor of New York in 1854 over Horace Greeley. He was elected and served from 1855 to 1856. Raymond has sometimes been called "the godfather of the Republican Party". He played a prominent role in the party's formation and drafted the Address to the People adopted by the Republican organizing convention in 1856.
