Analyses of media discourse have traditionally dealt with the role of power and politics in the media on the one hand, or with the organisation of talk and exchange of speech on the other. This book is different. It brings discourse analysis to bear on the media to present a positive examination of the theory, methods and practice informing the different media genres. The book's coverage includes:
* Reality tv
* Documentaries
* Radio phone-ins
* Chat show interviews
* Lifestyle shows
* News reporting
* Sporting events
This examination of the discourse of the media will be a essential reading on undergraduate and postgraduate option courses, and for researchers interested in media, communication and discourse.
