Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

reviews and synthesizes not only what is happening to journalism but also what is happening to the scholarly understanding of journalism. In the Second Edition, each chapter of the book has been updated to account for the radical changes that have reshaped the news industry over the last decade. With a new chapter on the sharp contraction of the news business in the United States since 2007, examines journalism as a social institution and analyzes the variety of forces and factors--economic, technological, political, cultural, organizational--that shape the news media today.

Book News Annotation:

Schudson (journalism, Columbia U.) offers a second edition of his book on the state of journalism and the scholarly understanding of it to reflect the drastic changes in both the practice and the field itself over the past decade. It also includes a new chapter on the downturn of the news business that began in 2007. He provides a history of journalism as well as discussions on its current status, media bias, the political culture of news, news sources, the audience, and news as literature and narrative.
