1. In the Seiter reading, it stated that smaller sample sizes (often less than 100 research subjects) resulted in the sacrifice of statistical generalizability; the model for such research is the case study, rather than the survey. What is meant by this statement? Why the use for such small sample sizes?

2. James Curran criticizes the 'new revisionism' in qualitative audience research, expressed irritation with the failure of some researchers to recognize when they are revisiting questions that have been debated since the 1930's, without references to any work down before 1970. What questions is Curran referring to?
