In the first section is an interesting account of Soviet media policy (particularly in the Gorbachev era) by Brian McNair. This is followed with David Miller's investigation into the strategies and tactics of the Northern Ireland Information Office during the troubles. Greg Philo looks at how the Ethiopian Famine of the mid 1980's came to be News. The section ends with David Miller and Kevin William on the conflicting agendas and media strategies of a variety of organisations with regard to the Aids crisis of the 1980's. Though not all directly relevant to the editorial categorisation (the essay on Soviet media policy is largely a narrative account and nonetheless interesting for that), they do give the reader an insight into how organisations try, and never truly succeed in influencing the News, as well as how News Organisations make the News.Read more ›
