Format: Paperback
Glasgow University Media Group shot to prominence in the 1970's with their ground breaking studies of television news, Bad News and More Bad News, which made an attempt to see what takes place in British television news under the banner of objectivity, impartiality and neutrality. This 1993 collection "Getting the Message: News, Truth and Power" is a collection of essays from past and present members of the group that deal with television and journalism. The essays are divided into three sections, News production (how the News is made), News output (the content of the News), and News reception (how audiences watch the News).

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.
