Law of Journalism and Mass Communication, Fourth Edition offers a clear and engaging introduction to media law. Authors Robert Trager, Joseph Russomanno, Susan Dente Ross, and Amy Reynolds present comprehensive coverage and analysis of this essential topic to future journalists and media professionals. The text offers an abundance of photos and feature boxes, as well as a marginal glossary of legal terms and concepts. Readers will explore real-world, landmark cases in context, as well as scenarios from significant cases, to help readers think critically about the concepts learned. Unlike many revisions that simply tack on new content-adding length and undermining clarity-the updates to the Fourth Edition are fully integrated, offering the current state of media law in one comprehensive and understandable discussion.
