Publisher description: Holding the Media Accountable is the first book-length treatment of the way media accountability works in practice. It presents real-world examples of clashes between media actions and public accountability. Pritchard and his colleagues examine a case of routine deception by a TV station's news staff; how a typical newspaper handles complaints about news content; media self-regulation, local regulation, and federal regulation; and the impact of lawyers and legal proceedings. This timely and important book fills a major gap in our practical knowledge about ethics at work in contemporary media.
