About this book

Why are young people alienated from television news? This book argues that contemporary trends indicating deepening disconnection from news about public life reflect both problems in the way television news covers politics - the single biggest item on the news - and problems with the nature of politics itself under neo-liberal capitalism.

Reviews

'A wonderfully thought-provoking rejoinder to those who maintain that the media defends liberty through the dominance of the commercial market. Written by experienced scholars in the field who provide some fascinating insights into the hidden world of senior newscasters and producers.' - Brian D. Loader, University of York, UK

'...a well constructed book, with plenty of empirical material as well as argument.' - Soundings
