The Business of Media: Corporate Media and the Public Interest

Front Cover

The Second Edition of The Business of Media: Corporate Media and the Public Interest provides students with the critical, yet careful, analysis of the rapidly changing media industry that they need in order to get behind the headlines and understand our increasingly media-saturated society. Authors David Croteau and William Hoynes examine the possible influence media changes are having on society-paying particular attention to the tension between the media industry's insatiable quest for profits and a democratic society's need for a media system that serves the public interest. The Second Edition has been revised and updated to include analysis of the media business in the early years of the 21st century!
