Introducing Media Studies [ePub]

by Ziauddin Sardar

Oddly enough, as I'm WAY into Media Studies, this was the first book of the Introducing Series that really let me down.

The actual media and communications theories were sort of passed over so the author could wax conspiratorial and get kind of racist. A dozen pages or so are spent explaining how Hollywood films exist primarily to reinforce the ideology of American foreign policy. The analysis of news and news media is misrepretational of journalistic technique and theory, and throughout the whole of the text, media is treated and described as if it is one impenetrable monolithic entity with the sole mission of controlling every aspect of your mind.

I could have written a better book on the subject.
