Hanks, William; Longini, Peter (1973). Access to the Airways: Rationale and Applications. Current movements toward greater public access to the airways are discussed. Traditional practices have limited access to journalists employed by stations and to those who purchase time and have allowed only limited responses to station-initiated editorials. Legal arguments that support citizen demands for more access arise from the First Amendment, the public-interest section of the Communications Act of 1934, the Fairness Doctrine amended into the Act, and the Programming Policy Statement of the FCC. Recent court litigation on this issue and the experimental programs in certain areas in developing means for increased public access are also discussed.   [More]  Descriptors: Broadcast Industry, Civil Liberties, Editorials, Freedom of Speech

Hogins, James Burl; Bryant, Gerald A., Jr. (1971). Juxtaposition. This anthology, intended for college freshman composition courses, is organized around eight "domains," each a major contemporary concern. The domains are "hot issues", feminism, ecology, student life, work, leisure, the arts, and "cold continuing causes" (issues that, while not "hot," are still important). The contents of each domain include examples from six genres, or approaches: graphics, advertisements, informative press (including commitment, slanted language, and definition), humor, literature, and music. Most of the selection here date from the last five years. The anthology is based on the premises that by looking at several objects in juxtaposition, the creative mind often arrives at new insights, and that one's ideas on a given topic are in large part the results of inputs from many sources.

Sheinkopf, Kenneth G.; O'Keefe, M. Timothy (1973). Political Advertising and the 1972 Campaign: A Communication Failure. During the 1972 presidential election campaign, both Senator McGovern and President Nixon used the longer, documentary-type, paid announcements of five-, fifteen-, or thirty-minutes in length. Critics asserted that the shorter spots did not allow enough time for the voters to learn substantive information about the candidates. A telephone survey of 743 voters in central California, conducted the weekend before the election, however, revealed that the new media strategies utilized by both candidates did not impart adequate information to the public. This lends credence to the idea that the media strategy itself is not the critical variable; instead, the content of the message is still most important, no matter how it is presented. Longer commercials seem to offer little benefit to the voters in terms of additional information on which to make their political choices.   [More]  Descriptors: Communication (Thought Transfer), Information Utilization, Mass Media, Political Attitudes
