Regulating the Media draws on political, social and economic theory as well as public law to provide a detailed examination of the legal and constitutional framework of media practice. Addressing the constitutional status of the media in relation to issues such as free speech, consumer choice and political accountability, it offers the student a fascinating guide to the complex interaction between the media's constitutional role and its commercial objectives. This 2nd edition considers the wide-ranging implications of developments since the Broadcasting Act 1990 for regulation of media ownership and finance, including the expansion of satellite and cable, the Press Complaints Commission, independent national radio, and the consolidation of regional television ownership.
