A lively look at politics as a "multi-million-
dollar...television show." Archival footage shows how TV news
came into its own at the 1952 conventions; how in the years since
it has changed "what we knew & when we knew it--& altered the
rules of politics. Shows one essential rule for candidates in
the recent Presidential primaries was: attract media attention.
Also examines the contest among network-news departments for
"prestige~ profits & ratings".

"LSSU's size is perfect. I see familiar faces every day. There is a security and comfort in that. The professors are wonderful, and there is a lot of interaction in the smaller classes. The level of attention students get is the same as at a small private college, but at a great price." [ more ]
