Politics and the Media
Intersections and New Directions

First Edition
  • Jane Hall - American University, Washington, DC, USA

October 2021 | 304 pages | CQ Press
Politics and the Media: Intersections and New Directions examines how media and political institutions interact to shape public thinking and debates around social problems, cultural norms, and policies. From the roles of race and gender in American politics to the 2020 elections and global coronavirus pandemic, this is an extraordinary moment for politicians, the news media, and democracy itself. Hall explores how media technologies, practices, and formats shape political decision making; how political forces influence media institutions; and how public opinion and media audiences are formed. Students will gain an understanding of these issues through in-depth interviews and case studies to help develop their own informed views and to learn to express them constructively.
