Seeking the wider public, not 'power triangle'
Review of All News is Local: The Failure of the Media to Reflect World Events in a Globalized Age, by Richard C. Stanton
Richard C. Stanton's new work is a reminder that brevity can be a virtue in academic writing. Stanton's concise book contends that a centuries-old Western apporach to news which plants all news in the local prevents the Western press from fully reporting world issues. He organises his discussion with supporting analysis from the news roles of world and regional institutions such as ASEAN and the UN as well as NGOs.
