Review: A foretaste of TV’s future
Review of: Australian Television News: New forms, functions, and futures, by Stephen Harrington, Bristol & Chicago: Intellect Press, 2013. 195pp, ISBN 9781841507170
This is a deliberately provocative book designed to address what the author sees as the main tropes of journalism studies and to redefine TV news journalism in a new digital age. It is built on three Australian programme case studies – the Network Seven morning show Sunrise, the Network Ten late evening conversational The Panel and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s comedic The Chaser’s War on Everything.
