Discourse of Broadcast News by Martin Montgomery Discourse of Broadcast News, Paperback (January 2006)

Drawing principally on linguistics, but multidisciplinary in its scope, this book demonstrates that news programmes are as much about showing as telling, as much about ordinary bystanders as about experts, and as much about personal testimony as calling politicians to account. It is suitable for anyone researching the news.
