Magandang Gabi Bayan: Nation, Journalism Discourse, and Television News in the Philippines
- About the Book
Magandang Gabi Bayan reveals that news workers are vulnerable to flows of internal and external power relations in their quest to provide relevant news to audiences. In their response to power, government and commercial news workers develop varying meanings and practices to journalism values such as public service and autonomy as they work to maintain their authority to be, through their stories, the public’s access point to the nation. Magandang Gabi Bayan presents the behind-the-scenes, push-and-pull of power within the exclusive world of broadcast news production, which ultimately determines what we see on the news.
