Discovering the News by Michael Schudson

Book Description

This instructive and entertaining social history of American newspapers shows that the very idea of impartial, objective "news" was the social product of the democratization of political, economic, and social life in the nineteenth century. Professor Schudson analyzes the shifts in reportorial style over the years and explains why the belief among journalists and readers alike that newspapers must be objective still lives on.

News Media by Michael Schudson News Media, Hardback (November 2016)

The business of journalism has an extensive, storied, and often romanticized history. This addition to the What Everyone Needs to Know(R) series looks at the past, present and future of journalism, considering how the development of the industry has shaped the present and how we can expect the future to roll out.

Rise of the Right to Know by Michael Schudson Rise of the Right to Know, Hardback (September 2015)

Modern transparency dates to the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s well before the Internet. Michael Schudson shows how the right to know has defined a new era for democracy less focus on parties and elections, more pluralism and more players, year-round monitoring of government, and a blurring line between politics and society, public and private."

Sociology of News by Michael Schudson Sociology of News, Paperback (November 2011)

A personal, trenchant, and comprehensive account of the contemporary news media.
