Overview

There are fewer hotter topics in media than the fate of journalism and new media in our rapidly changing world. Smart and controversial, this timely book explores the potential for a entirely new type of journalism which these changes create, discusses the impact of social networking sites and blogs on traditional journalism, and makes the case that journalism could be the catalyst for change needed to solve many of the world's problems. Drawing on his credentials as a first-class broadcast journalist, Beckett provides a practical roadmap for identifying the issues and solutions that will ensure an open and reliable news media for generations to come.

A lively, engaging and refreshingly opinionated text, SuperMedia offers an informed discussion on the importance and future of liberal journalism as a healthy part of a flourishing society.
