Supermedia superman

Charlie Beckett is the author of Supermedia which you will all recognise as one of the essential reading books for our Social Media module. He is also the director of POLIS – an innovative think tank for the London School of Ecconomics which carries out valuable research into contemporary  media and communications.

Beckett has an authoritative background in Journalism with a 20 year history working for the BBC, ITN and LWT.

While we were looking at journalism blogs in our Social Media tutorial on Wednesday I came across Charlie’s director’s blog on the POLIS website where he frequently comments on matters of journalism, society and the media.

I’ve had a look through his most recent blog posts which comment on topics ranging from the impact of social media in the political arena to how traditional journalism standards and ethics can be maintained in the growing new media environment.

This is a great blog with lots of reference to how digital media affects journalism and society.
