Journalists and academics regularly decry incivility in political discourse, and public opinion polls suggest that average Americans share a similar disdain. Foundations and civic groups likewise fund initiatives to call attention to this problem. Even politicians themselves express concerns about uncivil discourse and its potential consequences. Nonetheless, this near-universal condemnation does not appear to have affected the prevalence of political incivility. Moreover, I am not convinced that the political advocates of today are necessarily any more uncivil than politicians of previous centuries. Nonetheless, I am convinced that the way the American public experiences these uncivil exchanges has changed in important ways. “In Your Face Politics” explores the practical and historical consequences of televised politics that appears in our faces in two different respects: it is both uncivil and also has the appearance of close physical proximity.
