Description

Series 8, Subseries 8, Study of the Mass Media (Mass Media in a Free Society), 1950-1963, primarily analyzed television's relationship to the First Amendment. It broadened its scope to include censorship and standards of good taste; an examination of audience rating systems; an analysis of programming; the freedom of television writers; a study of how news is handled by broadcast agencies; government regulations; and a study of educational and pay television and alternate systems. As a result, conferences were held, pamphlets produced, funding was provided for television programs, and scores of articles and papers were written. There is also a large amount of correspondence with William Benton concerning his desire to develop a commission on mass communication.
