dc.description.abstract This thesis had determined the “radical” nature of Ramparts magazine.This was accomplished through the use of thematic and/or assertive analysis. This procedure entailed the use of three “content” categories which included Ramparts’ treatment of the American involvement in the Viet Nam war, its treatment of American politicians and/or political figures and its treatment of black (Negro) Americans. Each theme or assertion was assigned a “directional” category of “favorable (+),” “unfavorable (-)” or “neutral (0).”Among the major results derived from this study were the overall “favorable” reportage which pertained to the Ramparts coverage of the Viet Nam issue, the proximate balance achieved in relation to the coverage of American politicians and the overall “unfavorable” coverage which related to black Americans.The conclusions which emanated from such were that the reporting found in Ramparts almost never contained complete “objectivity” in that similar material was treated differently within and among each content and directional category. Therefore, the proof that Ramparts was a periodical on the “left” was confirmed.
