Booknews
In light of the poor coverage of high-profile trials of the past few years, former journalist Alexander (communications law, Loyala U., New Orleans) offers advice on responsible reporting for both print and broadcast media. First she overviews the judicial system and discusses the unavoidable conflict between the notions of fair trial and free press. Then she details criminal procedure to help reporters put events into a larger perspective. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
