News: The Politics of Illusion
Edition 9th edition
OverviewUpdated in a new 9th Edition, News: The Politics of Illusion, by W. Lance Bennett discusses and analyzes the dramatic shifts in news consumption and creation that have both ended and begun new eras of journalism in our time. How well does the news, as the core of the national political information system, serve the needs of democracy? In exploring this core question, this book examines both how political actors work their messages into the news and how journalists and news organizations report the news.
