Descripción de editorial
Globally media is in a state of flux with digital technologies disrupting traditional ways of doing business, current ownership patterns being challenged, and questions being raised about the degree of diversity within media industries.
Media Landscape 2014: Celebrating 20 Years of South Africa’s Media is the second in a series that tackles how the media environment in the country has evolved since democracy in 1994. This book reflects on both industry and public initiatives and asks the question: are media policies and principles being adhered to and what can be done to build a media industry that benefits all citizens.
This book introduces you to:
- The changing ownership patterns within the print and broadcast media.
- Debates on media development and diversity and how far we have come in achieving this.
- New journalism and the role of social media within the newsroom.
- Media policy challenges and solutions.
This book provides an excellent insight into the current issues that have emerged in the South African media environment. We encourage journalists and media scholars to read this book.
