On Television and Journalism

Television [Pdf/ePub] eBook

On Television and Journalism by Pierre Bourdieu Book Resume:

'A refreshing attack on the neuroses of news gathering ... these anxieties have never been expressed more intelligently and forcefully than in Bourdieu's book. It should be on the reading list not just of every journalist, but of everybody on the receiving end of the media.' The Guardian'I recommend Bourdieu's lively book.' John Pilger'As much an urgent 'intervention' as a magisterial argument: Bourdieu uses persuasion and polemic to alert his readers to a danger, and to convince them to resist. ' Le MondeA corruscating attack on television - and on the 'collaboration' between intellectuals and the media which, Bourdieu argues, is leading to new and more invidious forms of dumbing down. Bourdieu examines the way in which apparently serious TV debate gives way to soundbite, as a series of talking 'experts' go through the motions of comment and consideration in increasingly self-referential circles. The result: banal and worthless drivel, shaped almost entirely by the imperatives of television ratings wars rather than any consideration of the truth. Television, Bourdieu claims, has now had a profound and largely detrimental effect not just on journalism, but on the formerly very separate worlds of art, literature, philosophy, politics, justice and even science - all of which are in danger of being forced to submit to what he describes as the 'commercial plebiscite' of audience ratings.

A television series is tagged with the label "cult" by the media, advertisers, and network executives when it is considered edgy or offbeat, when it appeals to nostalgia, or when it is considered emblematic of a particular subculture. By these criteria, almost any series could be described as cult. Yet certain programs exert an uncanny power over their fans, encouraging them to immerse themselves within a fictional world. In Cult Television leading scholars examine such shows as The X-Files; The Avengers; Doctor Who, Babylon Five; Star Trek; Xena, Warrior Princess; and Buffy the Vampire Slayer to determine the defining characteristics of cult television and map the contours of this phenomenon within the larger scope of popular culture.
