Pressestimmen"At last, a book that treats tabloidism seriously! Glynn's multidimensional study - analytical, historical and theoretical - shows us how tabloid TV became the genre that reshaped the media environment of the 1980s and 1990s. Glynn's treatment of the phenomenon itself and of the controversies around it provide insights into contemporary media culture that we cannot ignore. No one who is interested in how changing notions of popular culture shape both the commercial and textual forms of contemporary media can afford to miss this book." - John Fiske, University of Wisconsin, Madison Collins, author of Architectures of Excess: Cultural Life in the Age of Information "This is a very smart book about aspects of contemporary media culture that have never been more visible nor more in need of rigorous analysis." - Jim Collins
