Synopsis

This book opens with a full discussion of 'mediated politics' and of developments in the media in Zimbabwe since independence up until the present day. The author analyses in considerable depth the 2000 election, posing the central and habitual question, namely, whether it was free and fair, taking into consideration factors of political competition, political violence and intimidation. He outlines a political profile of Zimbabwe's media, and finally presents some reflections on political journalism in the Zimbabwean context.
