This is an introduction to the forms, practices, institutions and audiences of journalism. It begins with a historical consideration of the rise of 'objective' reporting in newspaper, radio and televisual journalism. It explores the way news is produced, its textual conventions as a genre of discourse, and its negotiation by the reader, listener or viewer as part of everyday life. the text also examines the cultural dynamics of sexism and racism as they shape different instances of news coverage.
