FALL 2014: TCOM 3000 America’s Documentary Story To 1968
Dr. Tom Mascaro, M/W 4:30-‐5:45 p.m.(email@example.com)
“What we are talking about is nonfiction as opposed to fiction, in no more or less than the way the terms are understood by book writers and periodical writers as far back as we can remember. To say that a documentary means to inform rather than to entertain, which is one distinction sometimes made, is meaningless and useless because if it does not entertain it will not attract attention, and if nobody watches it, it will not inform anybody.” —Reuven Frank
