Journalism and free speech by John Steel( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Journalism and Free Speech brings together for the first time an historical and theoretical exploration of journalism and its relationship with the idea of free speech. Though freedom of the press is widely regarded as an essential ingredient to democratic societies, the relationship between the idea of freedom of speech and the practice of press freedom is one that is generally taken for granted. Censorship, in general terms is an anathema. This book explores the philosophical and historical development of free speech and critically examines the ways in which it relates to freedom of the press in practice. The main contention of the book is that the actualisation of press freedom should be seen as encompassing modes of censorship which place pressure upon the principled connection between journalism and freedom of speech. Topics covered include: The philosophy of free speech, journalism and free speech, press freedom and the democratic imperative, new media and the global public sphere, regulating journalism, privacy and defamation, national security and insecurity, ownership, news, language, culture and censorship. This book introduces students to a wide range of issuescenteredd around freedom of speech, press freedom and censorship, providing an accessible text for courses on journalism and mass media"--
