Will the Internet kill television? Does indecency over the airwaves undermine American society? Is the U.S. media industry too consolidated? These are just a sampling of the important, provocative questions in this new reader, sure to lay needed groundwork and spark lively classroom discussion. For current coverage of controversial and important issues centering on media, this title offers your students the balanced reporting, complete overviews, and engaging writing that "CQ Researcher" has consistently provided for over eighty years. This ideal supplement allows students to see an issue - be it Media Bias, the Rise of Blogs, or The Future of Newspapers - from all sides while giving them a window into the linkages between media, culture, business, and politics. In addition, useful pedagogical features - pro/con pieces, graphs, tables, photos, suggested readings, and bibliographies - advance critical thinking and help in study and review. The package includes "Issues in Media" with Ralph Hanson's "Mass Communication".
