News and Journalism in the UK is an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the political, economic and regulatory environments of press and broadcast journalism in Britain and Northern Ireland.

*'tabloidization', Americanization and the supposed 'dumbing down' of journalistic standards
*changing work patterns and the feminization of journalism
*trends in media ownership and editorial allegiances
*the impact of technological innovations such as digitalization, online media and 24 hour news
*the implications of devolution for regional journalists.
