9780813349770: Mightier than the Sword: How the News Media Have Shaped American History

In this engaging examination of the media's influence on US history and politics, Rodger Streitmatter visits sixteen landmark episodes, from the American Revolution to the present-day fight for gay and lesbian marriage equality. In each of these cases, Streitmatter succinctly illustrates the enormous role that journalism has played in not merely recording this nation's history but also in actively shaping it.

Mightier than the Sword offers students and professors a highly readable and accessible alternative to journalism history textbooks. Instead of trying to document every detail in the development of US media through dry, dull lists of names, dates, and headlines, this book focuses on sixteen discrete episodes that illustrate a point that is much larger than the sum of their parts: media have played and continue to play an enormous role in shaping this nation.

The fourth edition features an entirely new chapter on the way US media have championed various gay and lesbian rights initiatives, from the 2003 Lawrence vs. Texas sodomy case through the June 2013 Supreme Court decision striking down DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act). Balancing criticism and celebration of news media and exploring both print and electronic platforms, Mightier than the Sword provides students with a sense of the power and responsibility inherent in the institution of journalism.

From the Back Cover:

Impressive. Many texts are chock-full of facts and figures that put students to sleep; not so with Streitmatter s accessible story-telling approach. The evolution of news, from the American Revolution to journalism s current condition, is outlined in manageable chapters that capture the imagination.
Selene Phillips, University of Louisville

Balancing criticism and celebration of news media and exploring print, broadcast, and digital platforms, "Mightier than the Sword" provides students with a sense of the power and responsibility inherent in the institution of journalism. Instead of trying to document every detail in the development of the US news media through dry, dull lists of names, dates, and headlines, this book focuses on sixteen discrete episodes that illuminate a point that is much larger than the sum of their parts: journalism has played and continues to play an enormous role in shaping this nation.
The fourth edition features an entirely new chapter on the way the US news media have championed various gay and lesbian rights initiatives, including the Lawrence vs. Texas sodomy case and the Supreme Court decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act.
