Power Without Responsibility: The Press, Broadcasting, and New Media in Britain

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2003 - Performing Arts - 459 pages
An introduction to the history, sociology, theory and politics of media and communication studies, this text is a guide for all those involved with the production and consumption of the media. The authors ask if the rise of global media moguls, such as Rupert Murdoch, has undermined the historic ties between the press and the Conservative party, question whether we are actually on the threshold of a new communications revolution and consider the left-right divide in current media politics. Assessing the press and broadcasting at a time of radical change, the authors suggest a manifesto for media reform. This sixth edition has been revised to include up-to-date discussion and analysis of new media and impending broadcast and communications legislation, as well as an analysis of New Labour conservatism in relation to media policy and coverage of Scottish and Welsh media and devolution.
