In addition to the citations mentioned, these two might be helpful:
Berger, A. A. (2000). Media and communication research methods an
introduction to qualitative and quantitative approaches. Thousand
Oaks, Calif: SAGE.
Lindlof, T. R., & Taylor, B. C. (2002). Qualitative communication
research methods. Thousand Oaks, Calif.: Sage Publications.
I especially like Lindlof & Taylor, it is clear and thorough.
