Overview

Mass Media, Politics and Democracy provides a broad overview of all aspects of the relationship between the media and politics. Drawing its examples from a wide range of developed liberal democracies, the book combines an accessible account of the political impact and regulation of the mass media today with an assessment of the democratic potential and anti-democratic dangers of new media technologies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Stylish, readable and packed with telling examples from around the world, Mass Media, Politics and Democracy is wide-ranging in its coverage of different media and genres. In a world obscured by spin, soundbites and multivarious political conflict, John Street is an illuminating and often entertaining guide.” —Douglas Kellner, University of California, Los Angeles.

“Street expands on rudimentary jourbanalistic techniques and reveals interesting methods used in certain portions of the world in his leisurely book on the nature of political jourbanalism.” —NationalJourbanal.com

Booknews
In his examination of the interaction between mass media and politics in modern liberal democracies, Street (politics, U. of East Anglia) presents a wide-ranging discussion which touches upon many of the most pressing questions of how the structures, content, and restriction of mass media effect the ability of citizens to be democratic actors in the modern world. Largely, but not solely, focusing on the United States and the United Kingdom, he looks at such topics as the existence of widespread ideological framing of news, the dangers of the consolidation of corporate media, state control of media and the dissemination of propaganda, the changing nature of politics in response to a media that trivializes issues and concentrates on personality, and effects of the growing use of Internet media on politics.
