Overview

The Business of Media focuses on the changing media industry and the tension between the media industry's insatiable quest for profits and a democratic society's need for a media system that serves the public interest. The book reviews the history of the industry and its evolving technologies; examines how the structure and business strategies of the industry are changing; and considers the potential influence the new media industry will have on society. It also looks at how policy and citizen action can help to create media that contribute to a more vibrant public sphere.

Editorial Reviews

Jane Downing

"The framework used for thinking abou the mass media industry is excellent. And. . . the presentation of the material reflects the complexity of the mass media industry in a way that should be quite accessible to students, both conceptually and in terms of specific examples."

The Bookwatch
"... a candid revealing and detailed study of the rapidly evolving media industry, especially in an increasingly media-saturated society. A thoroughly scholarly work which defly presents its in-depth study in largely jargon-free and accessible terms ideal for the non-specialist general reader. The Business of Media offers insights and a close scrutiny into what really goes on behind newspaper and broadcast journalism headlines."
