Media, Myths, and Narrative: Television and the Press
Mass Communication and Culture: Myth and Narrative in Television and the Press seeks to decode some of the messages transmitted by our mass media in terms of the cultural tradition in which they are enmeshed.
Contributors from the fields of both communication and cultural studies, consider subjects as diverse as the narrative elements of news, the structural links between Dallas and the book of Genesis, and Rupert Murdoch as the demon of professional journalism.
The volume as a whole is a fascinating exposition of the thesis that television and the press are not only a part of popular culture but a reflection of it.
