  2. Where there is democracy,  there is ....... political inequality?

    Democracy and equality are foundations of modern societies. The news media has long been both a reflection and a shaper of modern societies; in their pages we would expect that they present the news about democracy and equality and, in doing so, help shape national conversations about these issues.  But do they?

    An exclusive article written for Routledge by Professor Joshua Kjerulf Dubrow looks at the coverage of Democracy and Equality in UK, USA and Canadian Newspapers, 1988 - 2013.

    Joshua's new edited collection Political Inequality in an Age of Democracy: Cross-national Perspectives is out now.  Click here to read more about this book.
