About this book


Mass Media, Politics and Democracy provides a broad ranging overview of all aspects of the relationship between the media and politics. Drawing its examples from a wide range of developed liberal democracies, the book combines an accessible account of the political impact and regulation of the mass media today, with an assessment of the democratic potential and anti-democratic dangers of new media technologies.
