At a time when the media's relation to power is at the forefront of political discussion, this book considers how journalists can affect public discourse on politics, economy and society at large.

From well-known and respected authors providing all new material, Making Journalists considers journalism education, training, practice and professionalism across a wide range of countries, including Saudi Arabia, Africa, India, USA and the UK.

The book offers insights into:

  • what journalism is

  • how education makes the journalist and, therefore, the news

  • models of journalism taught and practised across the globe

  • the ethical implications of the process.

When news reporting can lead to decisions on whether or not to got to war, everything can be affected by journalists and their mediation of the world. This text brings these present issues together in one invaluable resource for all students of journalism, politics and media studies.
