New coverage of important developments in mass media.

All-new Extended Case Study examines media roles in police violence. This case study takes students through recent stories of police violence and accompanying protests, and how these stories are told through both social and mainstream media outlets. Through the book's trademark five-step critical process, this section asks students to examine their own relationships with both digital and traditional media while asking critical-thinking questions about the media world in which we live.
