Global Television and Foreign Policy

James F. Larson, 1988 - 72페이지
This document explores the impact of television coverage on foreign policy decision making and the complexities of a changing media-foreign policy relationship in an era of global television. Government officials believe that television news has a great effect on foreign policy decisions. By contrast, many political scientists contend that television is subject to government news management and conveys an elite view of U.S. overseas interests. Television coverage and its potential impact on public opinion are factors to be planned and controlled in the implementation of foreign policy, according to this perspective. Chapter 1 explores television's role in the U.S. foreign policy process. Chapter 2 delineates the rise of television news to its dominant position in the politics of foreign policy through the confluence of technology, economics, public reliance on television as a news source, and a set of international concerns. Chapter 3 discusses how foreign policy and international news should be defined and handled by broadcasters. Chapter 4 outlines the advent of global television as a participant in the foreign policy process. Chapter 5 examines whether or not the public influences foreign policy. Chapter 6 elucidates the manner in which television's growing capacity as a channel for global communication will affect its relationship to the foreign policy process in the future. This issue concludes with student and community discussion questions and resources. (SM)
