New to this edition

  • Highlights the vast changes in the global media over the past decade, featuring developments in the field of media technology, to help portray the ever-changing role of international journalism. Topics covered include the impact of blog and iPod journalism; e-mails and Web sites from the Middle East to the Far East and in between, and the legal impediments involved therein.
  • Incorporates new discussions and examples showing how physical, cultural, and economic barriers impede media development and explores how countries work to overcome barriers caused by repressive governments and the challenges of globalization.
  • Discusses and presents a case study regarding the ethics of how journalists and the media deal with news in a diverse, multicultural and globalized world.
  • Examines the issue of news presentation and the “skewing” of foreign news through “double misreading” when “tourist journalists” fall prey to the manipulation of spin doctors.
