A superb book which details the variou ways in which media reporting can distort a story. The book is up to date and in view of the current media wrongdoings, a brilliant read.

Format: Paperback
i almost stopped reading this after the first chapter as it was painfully and stodgily academic but pleased i progressed as it was a very interesting read how the media depicts muslims today.it examines the frequency of key words used in artcles.also debunks some of the media myths such as christmas being banned and reporting of women and the burkha.
