The Rise of the Public Speakership
Douglas B. Harris discusses the increased tendency of Speakers of the U.S. House of Representatives to use media strategies for legislative leadership. He argues that this is a general trend in the nature of the speakership rather than a phenomenon attributable to the present Speaker. He concludes with an examination into the ways in which this trend might affect legislative coalition building and congressional policy making.
