Media and Politics 2e offers a thorough introduction to the politics of the Australian media, particularly the effect that Australia's liberal democratic tradition has on the operation and structure of the media, and in turn the effect of the media on politics. It examines the development and evolution of the Australian media, as well as the key debates and controversies which have shaped the domestic media landscape in the last decade. It seeks to explain the dynamics of contemporary media policy and technology while using an approach that locates suchchanges in enduring principles of political power and institutional behaviour. The book maps outs the key institutions, ideas and actors which influence the operation of the Australian media i.e. the legal and bureaucratic framework, the regulators, the interest groups and the public, providing a strong framework to understand the relationship between media and politics inAustralia.
