chapter  3
Media production: Discursive practices, news production and the mobilisation of bias in public discourse
Pages 19

This chapter looks at news production. It discusses the issue of whether power imbalances and inequalities in society are reflected or reinforced in the news production process. It is argued that the same procedures and ideals of journalism, developed as a means of producing professional, objective and socially reflective news, have also become a cause of less visible forms of distortion.
