Summary
Overview: "Print and broadcast journalism in the United States have changed in recent years as a result of millions of people using the Internet and social media for obtaining some or most of the information they desire," notes professor of journalism Edd Applegate. After surveying the decline in circulation and advertising revenues of newspapers and broadcast and radio news stations, as well as the rise of cable news and website journalism, Applegate outlines the effect of this sea of change on key matters in journalism today in journalism in the United States: Concepts and Issues. He updates readers on the current conditions of the print and broadcast industries with chapters on such topics as the structure of the print and broadcast industries, the role of advertising and public relations, and the changing views of the press's commitments to objectivity and "news balance." Applegate encourages readers to consider how the change in medium, from print or Broadcast to web, is not the main culprit in how the news has changed. Instead, he illustrates how many of the core issues remain unchanged and what is needed is a more complex analysis of core concepts and issues and how these have been affected-from freedom of the press to the treatment of minorities-by the evolution of news as a business and the education of journalists. With a selected bibliography and an index, this book is a thought-provoking text for upper-level undergraduates, graduates; and college faculty with journalism or mass communications courses, as well as for academic libraries
