The Fourth Estate: An Informal Appraisal of the News and Opinion Media.
Hulteng, John L.; Nelson, Roy Paul
Aimed at helping readers become more understanding and more discriminating consumers of the information that the mass media provides, this book explores the rights and responsibilities of a free press within society. Subsequent chapters consider the medium's organization, the "disappearing daily," some weaknesses of the press, the objective-subjective reporting dilemma, ethics in the newsroom, the opinion and editorial function of the press, cartoons and other visuals, the impact of magazines, books and publishing, television news and cable television, advertising, public relations news, and conflicts among various constitutional rights and the right to free speech.
