9780192806567: Journalism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

In Journalism, Ian Hargreaves uses his unique position within the media to examine how we get this information and the many practical, political, and professional decisions that the journalist has to make, as part of the process of delivering that information to us.Hargreaves argues that the core principles of "Freedom of the Press" and the necessity of exposing the truth are as vital today as they ever were. He examines the ethical responsibility of the journalist to respond to the demands of civil society, as opposed to the demands of the state, and focuses on contentious issues in contemporary journalism, such as intrusion, lack of accountability, obscenity, trivialization, rumor-mongering, and libel.

About the Author:


Ian Hargreaves is a Professor of Journalism at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University. He is one of Britain's leading journalists and one of the very few to have held senior positions in newspapers, magazines, television and radio. He was Director of News and Current Affairs at the BBC, Deputy Editor of the Finanical Times, Editor of the Independent and Editor of the New Statesman.

Although a life-long journalist, Hargreaves has also been a prominent figure in political and policy debates, which ground his arguments about journalism in a social and economic context.

Review:

`Hargreaves has written a timely and disturbing account of journalism in peril.
'
Martin Bell, iThe Times /i

`Ian Hargreaves is a distinguished journalist and academic with a fine track record of editorial integrity and incisive thought.'
Chris Cramer, Director of News, CNN
