This collection of essays puts the issue of making sense of reality at the centre of the debate about journalism. Intellectually challenging and provocative, the essays invite readers to think critically about the information circulating in the news media, and to explore the position of journalism in society. Well-illustrated case studies support historical, linguistic, sociological and cultural analyses of the tools, techniques and rules journalists use to represent, interpret, and construct reality. Well-written, well-timed and supported by a number of examples, this book is directed at an academic as well as general audience interested in journalism and its place in our understanding of the world.
