What is the future of television? What is the impact of media violence on society? Is news quality better or worse online? Should we regulate internet and social media use, and if so, how? Will traditional print books disappear from the marketplace? These are just a sampling of the important, provocative questions in this new reader, sure to provide a solid foundation to spark lively classroom discussion. For current coverage of controversial and important issues centering on media, look to the balanced reporting, complete overviews and engaging writing that CQ Researcher has consistently provided for more than eighty years. This brief reader allows students to see the links between media, culture, business and politics, and an opportunity to view the issues from all sides while giving them a window into the relationships between media, culture, business, and politics. In addition, useful pedagogical features-pro/con debates, graphs, tables, photos, suggested readings, and bibliographies-advance critical thinking and help in study and review.
