This favorite of both instructors and students is a behind-the-scenes tour of news in American politics. The core question explored in this book is: How well does the news, as the core of the national political information system, serve the needs of democracy? In investigating this question, the book examines how various political actors from presidents and members of Congress, to interest organizations and citizen-activists try to get their messages into the news.
