Democracy, Prospects for Media Democracy, and Conclusion: Democracy in Transition. Thus, much of political life is being colonized by media logic. Europe’s political parties partially offset the effect of media logic but even these have. A key part of this well-informed conceptual analysis of media and politics is. media logic that tends to focus public attention on a limited range of topics or themes. While this key concept is never defined by the author, its usage is quite consistent with a. formulation published twenty-five years ago (Altheide and Snow 1979). Indeed, it is the transformation of the political parties by the mass.

The media thus colonize politics, and the politicans self-interest turns them into accomplices. Politics and the media have formed a partnership to conduct their main business: adopting well-tested formulas from the theatre to media productions. The public begins to respond to politics as an aesthetic phenomenon, losing sight of the principles that make political action unique and sustain autonomy and democracy. In his controversial new book, Thomas Meyer argues that the media are transforming traditional party democracy into ‘media democracy'. Political elites submit to the mass media's formulas in the hope of salvaging some influence over their public images.

Media/Society is a textbook that is highly successful in introducing students to a 'sociologically informed analysis of the media process' (p. xvi). Through its focus on the media-society relationship, the book provides a major statement of the contribution that sociology can make to contemporary understandings of the media, both engaging with and going beyond approaches emerging out of disciplines such as media and communications studies, cultural studies and political science.

In his controversial new book, Thomas Meyer argues that the media are transforming traditional party democracy into 'media democracy'. Political elites submit to the mass media's formulas in the hope of salvaging some influence over their public images. The media thus colonize politics, and the politicans' self-interest turns them into accomplices. Politics and the media have formed a partnership to conduct their main business: adopting well-tested formulas from the theatre to media productions. The public begins to respond to politics as an aesthetic phenomenon, losing sight of the principles that make political action unique and sustain autonomy and democracy. Real power in the media is wielded by an iron triangle committed to the media's logic of up-to-the-minute reportage: media-savvy political elites, pollsters and media executives. Democratic politics with its slow-paced processes has traditionally relied on parties, intermediary actors and the institutions of representative government, but all have been banished to the periphery today. Meyer shows how media democracy has replaced deliberation - once the lifeblood of democratic public life - with pseudo-plebiscites. Nevertheless, deliberative procedures could regain some influence through local civic participation and a thorough reform of the communicative culture of the mass media. Meyer argues that the culture of the media should be transformed in ways that would serve democracy, enabling citizens to deepen their understanding of political realities. This powerful critique of media democracy will be of great interest to students of politics and the media and to anyone concerned with the impact of the media on public life.
