News and Journalism in the UK
Not available
News and Journalism in the UK is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the political, economic and regulatory environments of press and broadcast journalism in Britain and Northern Ireland.
Surveying the industry in a period of radical economic and technological change, Brian McNair examines the shifts in journalistic media in the last two decades and assesses the challenges and future of the industry in the new millennium.
Integrating both academic and journalistic perspectives on journalism, this revised and updated edition identifies the main issues confronting journalism in the United Kingdom, including:
* tabloidisation, Americanisation and the supposed dumbing down of journalistic standards
* changing work patterns and the feminisation of journalism
* the outcome of the 1997 general election and the changing allegiances of the tabloids and broadsheets
* technological innovations such as digitalisation and 24 hour news*
* the fluctuating fortunes of the Mirror Group newspapers and the changes of ownership of titles and media groups
* the implications of devolution for regional journalists.
