Abstract
With the ever-increasing role of media in both reporting crime and shaping it into infotainment, the importance of the interplay between contemporary media and the criminal justice system is greater today than ever before. Author Ray Surette comprehensively surveys this interplay while emphasizing that people use media-provided knowledge to construct a picture of the world, and then act based on this constructed reality.
