Comstock G., Scharrer E. The Psychology of Media and Politics
Research indicates that people discount their own opinions and experiences in favor of those of "experts" as espoused in the media. The framing of news coverage thus has a profound impact on public opinion, and political decision making as a response to public outcry. However, the choice of how to frame the news is typically made to solicit viewership and high ratings rather than to convey accurate and meaningful information. This book discusses why people discount their own opinions, how the media shapes the news, when this drives political decision making, and what the effect is on the future of society.

Issues addressed include:
* How powerful are the media in shaping political beliefs/judgment?
* How has this power changed in recent years?
* How does media influence voting behavior?
* To what extent do media opinions affect political decision making?

* Demonstrates the ways in which the media both constrain and facilitate democratic participation
* Provides insight into why individuals have varying levels of attention to and interest in politics
* Discusses such issues as political advertising, polls, debates, and joualists' pursuit of scandal
* Describes why only some Americans tu out to vote in prominent elections.
* Offers a model of personal- versus social-level influences that extends beyond politics into other important topic areas
* Brings together research and theories from the fields of Communication, Psychology, and Political Science
* Reviews hundreds of key sources, both historical and contemporary

It can be argued that the political psychology approach of Harold D. Lasswell has either been forgotten, devalued, or assumed to have been supplanted by his policy science approach by the current social sciences, especially by political psychologists. This does violence to the social sciences in general insofar as its exclusion from the canon of theoretical paradigms robs the social sciences of a useful and efficacious tool to explain much politi...
