A concise, readable, and informative analysis of the influence of television on the habits and manners of the American television public. Bringing together three schools of thought -- empirical research, theory, and speculative extrapolation -- this work interprets the result of thirty years of research by psychologists, sociologists, political behaviouralists, and mass communication researchers. 'It is an intelligently written and timely text...Broad in scope, yet specific in much of its content, aimed at informing rather than reforming. Television in America can provide a much needed perspective to all educated Americans in assessing the impact of television.' -- Contemporary Education, Vol 55 No 4, 1984

This is the first in-depth look at the development of the television newscast, the most popular source of news for over forty-five years. During the 1940s, most journalists ignored or dismissed television, leaving the challenge to a small group of people working above New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. Without the pressures of ratings, sponsors, company oversight, or many viewers, the group refused to recreate newspapers, radio, or newsreels on the new medium. They experimented, argued, tested, and eventually settled on a format to exploit television’s strengths. This book documents that process, challenging common myths – including the importance of a popular anchor, and television’s inability to communicate non-visual stories – and crediting those whose work was critical in the formation of television as a news format, and illustrating the pressures and professional roadblocks facing those who dare question journalistic traditions of any era.
