Media, Politics, and Popular Culture

David A. Schultz

It’s Show Time! Media, Politics, and Popular Culture is an exciting collection of original essays introducing undergraduate students and interested readers to the important role that the media and popular culture have in shaping their lives and views on politics. Written by both political scientists and journalists, this book looks at the diverse ways television, movies, the internet, and even soap operas mold public opinion and define how we view political reality. However, as these essays will reveal, this socialization is not all benign. Instead, this book reveals a corporate media increasingly trapped by the demands to inform, entertain, and make a profit – often at times distorting reality by transforming criminals into heroes, assassination theories into fact, and participatory government into a spectator sport. Overall, It’s Show Time! explores the limits and possibilities of the media and emerging information technologies as they shape political perceptions and politics into the twenty-first century.

Media, Politics, and Political Advertising

David A. Schultz

Television sets the tone for American political advertising through paid advertisements, the nightly news, and even late-night talk shows. This anthology explores the reality of political advertising in the media – the impact of negative ads, what constitutes a good ad, new strategies, ads for specific audiences (different ethnic groups) and campaigns (such as that of Arnold Schwarzenegger in California), advertising for ballot initiatives – and examines the role of the news in political campaigns as well as that of politics as entertainment on late-night television. This book will be useful in classes in media and politics, campaigns and elections, and politics and popular culture.
