Designed with the teacher and the classroom in mind, Cassey's volume recounts the history of tabloid journalism and theories regarding the selection and value of news items; the responsibilities of key personnel involved with writing and producing the tabloid press; the contentious issues that surround freedom of the press; and the importance of such institutions as the Press Complaints Commission.
