MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- If you find yourself punching the mute button on your TV remote every time a political attack-ad comes on, a Vanderbilt researcher wants you to know they do serve a useful purpose.
Dr. John Greer, Chairman of the Vanderbilt Political Science Department, delivered a lecture here on the Middle Tennessee State Campus yesterday concerning his attack-ad research.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (BURRISS) -- Boy, am I ever dazed and confused. In just a few weeks we’ll be talking about how, in late October 1938, hundreds of thousands of people thought a radio dramatization about a Martian invasion of the earth was real. And a question has always been, how could these people be taken in like that? I mean, all they had to do was change the channel, and they would have had a pretty good clue that nothing serious was going on.
