Constructing public opinion
- Main contributors
Ericsson, Susan; Media Education Foundation
Prof. Justin Lewis demonstrates the ways the mass media uses polling data, not to reflect what Americans think, but instead to construct public opinion itself. Addresses the role the media play in "manufacturing consent" for political elites, what polls really tell us about public opinion, and what Americans actually think about political and social issues.
