Elie Abel (Editor)
The twelve thought-provoking essays comprising What's News review recent trends and events that have serious implications for both print and broadcast media in America. These timely studies examine the modern American media in its social, economic, and political context and address issues of current concern regarding the media's approach to and treatment of news. What's News focuses on the growth of the news business as big business and considers the rights of readers and viewers, the accountability of the media to their audience, and recent court decisions on First Amendment cases
