Media and Values

An interesting new book on Media and Values has appeared, which looks to be a blending of focus group research on, and historical background to, the demise of the Reithian idea that the media were a ‘pilot’ through moral and social uncertainty. I’ve yet to see a copy, but it is reviewed in Prospect (Feb 2008). It makes some mention of Mary Whitehouse; a figure on whom rather more research is probably needed.
