It focuses on major public issues such as the impact of fictional violence on children and media coverage of ethnic minorities, the developing world and disasters. The research focuses on the production, content and reception of these media messages and its conclusions are linked to contemporary communications theory. It is critical of post-modern approaches and of much received wisdom about contemporary television audiences. The contributors call for media studies to be critical and engaged with key social issues and in the final chapter point to the implications of their work for the teaching of communications and journalism. Message Received will be essential reading for students taking courses in media studies, communications, social policy and psychology and essential reading for all those interested in the work of the Glasgow Media Group and how issues are portrayed in the media.
