John Heritage

Description:

The news interview has become a major vehicle for presenting broadcast news
and political commentary. This book examines the place of the news
interview in Anglo-American broadcasting as well as its historical
development in the United States and Britain. It discusses the fundamental
norms and conventions that shape conduct in the modern interview, including
the linguistic and interactional practices of journalists. Through analyses
of well-known interviews, the book explores the relationship between
journalists and public figures, and reveals the tensions lying beneath the
surface of the nightly news.
