Based on detailed case studies of news coverage and upon interviews with over 200 senior journalists, this study reveals the processes which produce news, the strategies political figures adopt to influence its making and the means by which news coverage plays a role, sometimes explosively, in political events. "The allegedly so-called free and democratic press. What a press! It is owned for the most part by financial crooks and is edited for the most part by mental harlots." Arthur Calwell "The power of journalists to divert the executive from seriously addressing real national problems is great and destructive." Sir Arthur Tange. There is something about the news media which provokes wild generalisations and extreme opinions. But what is the relationship between the news and politics? How is news "made"? And how does the media influence the way politics is played? "News and power" subjects the claims and counterclaims to rigorous scrutiny. Based on detailed case studies of news coverage and upon interviews with over two hundred senior journalists, it reveals the processes which produce news, the strategies political figures adopt to influence its making, and the means by which news coverage plays a role, sometimes explosively, in political events. "Rodney Tiffen, a media analyst and author of" The news from east Asia", teaches politics at the University of Sydney.".
