Constructing Public Opinion: How Politicians and the Media Misrepresent the Public

Media Education Foundation ; director, Susan Ericsson
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Political theorist Justin Lewis examines how polling data presented in the media do not simply reflect what Americans think, but construct public opinion itself. Exploding the myth that most Americans are moderate or conservative, Constructing Public Opinion demonstrates how political elites help to promote militarism, and how mainstream media sustain an electoral system with a built-in bias against the interests of ordinary people.
