The Journalist’s Guide to Media Law. Dealing with legal and ethical issues
Date of this Version
Mark Pearson's widely used introduction to media law takes a journalist's perspective. Writing in a clear non-legalistic fashion, he shows how journalists can produce ethical, hard-edged reportage while staying on the right side of the law. He also explains how to negotiate some of the key ethical minefields of day-to-day reporting, focussing on ethical dilemmas which can have legal consequences.
This fully revised and much expanded third edition includes new material on defamation, anti-terrorism and intellectual property to reflect changes in legislation.
