Politics and The Press
The News Media and Their Influences

Norris, Pippa
Publisher:  Lynne Reinner Publishers
Year Published:  1997  
Pages:  36 pp.   ISBN:  978-1-55587-681-4
Politics and the Press not only examines how journalists define the news; it also explores the role of the media in elections and the shaping of public opinion, as well as the reportage of the news on policy issues.
This important work presents original research by a unique team of visiting scholars, journalists, and industry leaders at the Joan Shorenstein Center at Harvard University. Norris and the contributors pay particular attention to the influence of the press on the policy apparatus of government, and the impact of economics and changes in communications technology on news reporting. Included in the book are perspectives on minorities and women as members of the news industry.
