Media, Journalism, and Communication: A Student's Guide
Whether it’s 24-hour news networks, influential blogs, or popular social networking sites, we’re constantly bombarded by news from innumerable sources. The sheer volume of data that we have to process on a daily basis makes it harder than ever to discern important information from mere white noise. In this addition to the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition series, Read M. Schuchardt—a former student of media studies pioneers Neil Postman and Marshall McLuhan—explores the opportunities and pitfalls of constant communication in a digital age. Engaging and thoughtful, this concise book will help Christian students use technology wisely and think carefully about the media-saturated world in which we live.
