Summary

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.

The contributors are Kristie Bunton, Eddith Dashiell, Tom Luljak, Neil Nemeth, Patrick O'Neill, Lindsy Pack, David Pritchard, and Craig Sanders.
