Understanding Global News provides a lively and critical introduction to the news media. Written specifically for media students and training journalists, this book invites the reader to explore contemporary journalistic practice, as well as the assumption that the media provide a mere window on the world. Challenging the often unquestioned notions of media objectivity, the author turns the classic questions├╣Who, Why, What, When, and Where├╣onto the news media themselves. By employing a range of theoretical perspectives and a large variety of examples, the author demonstrates the way in which our perceptions of the world are constructed by the news media. Understanding Global News will be an essential text for all students of journalism and media studies.
