Summary

This market-leading text discusses the most relevant mass media legal decisions, from the Constitution to the most recent Supreme Court sessions, in relation to their relevance to modern American law. From the Internet to political advertising laws, Mass Media Law examines the current issues that are shaping the United States legal system. Known for its clear explanations and its consistent pedagogy, the text includes mid-chapter summaries, a table of cases, and more. The new edition has been heavily revised to include several new cases, updated coverage on military censorship (to include the war in Iraq), intrusion on the Internet, and new material on the deregulation of the telecommunications industry.
