Citizen democracy : political activists in a cynical age by Stephen E Frantzich( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Apathy and antipathy toward politics are epidemic. Citizen Democracy provides the antidote. In this revised and updated edition, Stephen E. Frantzich portrays citizens from every walk of life - rich and poor, old and young, black and white, male and female, left and right, famous and obscure - as they choose to become involved in politics at a level to which readers can relate." "Citizen Democracy shows ordinary people engaged in extraordinary civic activity. Their causes run the gamut from civil rights to flag burning, from the Internet to the environment - but their common cause is the fact that they creatively entered the arena of national public policy making and made a difference."--Jacket

Founding father : how C-SPAN's Brian Lamb changed politics in America by Stephen E Frantzich( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike most networks, C-SPAN's origin, development, operations, and legacy can be traced back to one person. Brian Lamb has never been elected to office nor appointed to a policy-making position, yet his impact on American politics supercedes that of many whose titles and positions imply greater influence. The "founding father" and "inspirational heart" of C-SPAN serves as the broker for democracy." "Founding Father is the first biography of the enigmatic, self-effacing, and modest Brian Lamb. It explores Lamb's experiences as a student in the Midwest, public affairs officer to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, White House staffer during the Johnson and Nixon administrations (including his efforts to advise and prepare Vice President Gerald Ford to assume the presidency following the anticipated resignation of President Richard Nixon), Capitol Hill press secretary, media columnist, and many other previously unknown stories. Founding Father aha chronicles the creation and rise of C-SPAN from a dream, to an unknown niche network, to the network of record for public affairs with its legion of C-SPAN junkies."--Jacket

O.O.P.S. : observing our politicians stumble : the worst candidate gaffes and recoveries in presidential campaigns by Stephen E Frantzich( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Democratic theory mandates that candidates be judged on the basis of policy initiatives and professional capabilities. In reality, gaffes on the campaign trail too often replace substance as the criteria used to assess qualifications, especially in an era when a smart phone video clip can go viral in a matter of minutes. At times gaffes do represent character flaws or reveal significant personal shortcomings. As many a modern presidential candidate has discovered, an innocent slip of the tongue can quickly become a fatal mistake
Congress, the media, and the public : who reveals what, when, and how? by Stephen E Frantzich( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the beginning of the Republic, members of Congress have been in the media spotlight. In recent years, the expansion of media venues has provided both challenges and opportunities to Representatives and Senators, the public, and even the media itself. Legacy media such as newspapers and broadcast television each carry with them their own needs and accepted usages affecting the kind and volume of news about Congress delivered to the public. These sources still serve important roles for much of the public and are covered here. This book goes beyond the traditional legacy media to include Congress' portrayal on live television, in political cartoons, in film, as a part of the emerging "infotainment" venues, and through social media such as web pages, Facebook, and Twitter. We increasingly live in a world where the lines between traditional news and others sources of information have been erased. This is an exciting, if challenging, time, for Congress, the media, and the public as each attempts to sort out the new media environment and employ it to its advantage. Using a comprehensive analysis of previous research, dozens of interviews, and the inclusion of empirical data, this book assesses the current status of the relationship between Congress and the media and sorts out the temporary changes from those likely to represent future trends. Whether one is associated with Congress, is an interested citizen, or is part of the media industry, understanding the relationships and developments between and among them is key to understanding how the public behaves in relation to Congress, and vice versa."--Provided by publisher
