About the Book

Media Law and Ethics is a truly comprehensive overview and a thoughtful introduction to media law principle and cases and the related ethical concerns relevant to the practice of professional communication. This is the first textbook to explicitly integrate both media law and ethics within one volume. Since it integrates both the law and ethics, it is ideal for both undergraduate and graduate courses in media law and ethics. New co-author Dr. Kyu Ho Youm helps provide this new edition with an international scope, having written a chapter in the previous edition on international and foreign law. The book also covers the most timely and incendiary issues in modern American media.
