Summary
"News Culture provides a rich and lively discussion, full of insights into the changing forms, practices, institutions and audiences of journalism. Its fresh engagement with a wide-ranging number of issues, together with the use of thought-provoking examples, offers the reader a comprehensive assessment of different critical approaches to the news media on both sides of the Atlantic." "The book begins with an historical consideration of the rise of 'objective' reporting in newspaper, radio and televisual journalism. It goes on to explore the way news is produced, its textual conventions as a genre of discourse, and its negotiation by the reader, listener or viewer as part of everyday life. Attention then turns to address the cultural dynamics of sexism and racism as they shape different instances of news coverage. Finally, the book examines ongoing debates about the status of journalism as a form of popular culture. Book jacket."--Jacket
