Business and Financial Journalism provides a definitive analysis of financial and business journalism - its origins, how and why it developed and how it shapes and influences political debates.*BR**BR*Keith J. Butterick provides a compelling explanation for why big business needs the press and why the press needs big business. The book cuts through the fog of misreporting which occurred during the recent financial crisis, explaining just why so much that passes for financial journalism is inadequate.*BR**BR*Butterick sheds light on an area of journalism which is little understood, revealing the models by which it operates and why business and financial journalism continues to be more successful than other sectors of the printed media. It will be essential reading for students of journalism and media studies.
