Series Key Concerns in Media Studies

In this critical interrogation of the meaning of media professionalism and the efficacy of training in the digital age, Niblock presents one of the very first texts to scrutinise professional norms and question the scope of the media's power. The book's synthesis of practice and theory makes it ideal for Media and Journalism students.

Sarah Niblock is Head of Journalism and also programme convenor for MA Journalism and MA International Journalism at Brunel University, West London, UK. She is also a freelance journalist and has written for publications including The Guardian, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph and Cosmopolitan and Company magazines.

"This timely and to-the-point book provides a fascinating overview of the crucial issues facing journalists, consumers and the industry as a whole. Niblock recognises that, post Leveson, now is the time to clarify issues such as ethics and professional standards, and does so in a way that makes it enjoyable to read." – Julie Bindel, freelance journalist and broadcaster
