Book Description

From an author highly knowledgeable in the field, News is a handy and accessible guide that examines the history of news, both as newspapers and radio, and as entertainment and information, and introduces students to the key concepts and issues that surround the news.

Using up-to-date case examples such as the Hutton Report and embedded journalists, from across a range of media including print, radio, television and the internet, Jackie Harrison explains the different theoretical approaches that have been used to study the news, as well as providing an accessible introduction to how news is produced and regulated, what counts as news, and how it is selected and presented.

Topics covered include:

  • introduction to the concept of news
  • the growth and development of news
  • technology, concentration and competition
  • balancing freedom and responisibility
  • regulatory control of the news
