Understanding Global News : A Critical Introduction, Paperback

Understanding Global News : A Critical Introduction Paperback


A lively and critical introduction to the news media, this book has been written specifically for media students and trainee journalists.

Understanding Global News invites the reader to explore contemporary journalistic practice, and questions the assumption that the media provide a mere window on the world.

Challenging the often unquestioned notions of media objectivity, the author turns the classic questions: Who?

What? When? and Why? onto the news media. By employing a range of theoretical perspectives and a large variety of examples, the author demonstrates the way in which our perceptions of the world are constructed by the news media.
