Summary
"Do 24/7 news networks, ever conscious of their ratings, privilege style and spectacle at the expense of substance? Is a fiercely competitive, increasingly globalized and more fragmented news market diluting and debasing television news?" "Taking the analysis well beyond the 'dumbing down' argument. Thussu argues that this emerging phenomenon plays an important ideological role, with 'soft news' masking the hard realities of neo-liberal imperialism. This book is a thorough and critical investigation of infotainment from a leading scholar of global communication. It will be essential reading for all students of the news."--BOOK JACKET
