Mass Media Law, in its twenty-first edition, examines the First Amendment freedoms of the press, speech and assembly, extremely relevant in an era of “fake news” and open hostility by some politicians toward the fourth estate. Students get a timely and detailed look at how media law works through up-to-date court rulings, statutes, case studies and pertinent examples. Clay Calvert, Dan Kozlowski and Derigan Silver, renowned scholars in the field of media law, have made this new edition easy for students to understand, engage with and apply to their own lives as consumers and potential producers of mass media.
