Mark Q. Rhoads believes American politics needs a rebirth of civility–the sort we experienced during the mid 20th century. I agree. One problem is that this apparent golden age of civility pre-dated television. The medium of TV demands drama and conflict of a sort that is at odds with civility.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
