This authoritative, persuasive account evaluates television journalism's contribution to society from a political, economic, and cultural framework. Covering issues of ownership, control, policy, and regulation, the book is a blend of theory and history that examines the UK industry from a comparative perspective. It establishes the importance of television journalism, how it converges with other formats, and the ways in which it can survive an ever-changing terrain with the advent of new technologies and new media.
