Description : News production, distribution and consumption are in rapidly changing due to the rise of new media. This book examines how these processes become more and more interrelated through logics of dissemination, sharing and co-production. These changes have the potential to affect the criteria of newsworthiness as well as existing power structures and relations within the fields of journalism and agenda setting. The book discusses changing logics of production, from citizens’ as well as journalists’ perspectives, examines distribution and sharing as a link between but also an intrinsic part of production and consumption, and addresses the changing logics of consumption. Contributors place such changes in a historical perspective and outline challenges and future research agendas.
Description : Diversity and the Media offers a concise and interdisciplinary overview of the relationship between diversity and media. Focusing on media regulation in democratic societies throughout, individual chapters explore how different conceptions of diversity relate to media audiences, media workforces, media outlets and media content. Drawing on research approaches grounded in the political economy of media, political communication, media economics and critical media industry studies, the book analyses a wide range of current and historical examples from the UK, the US and Europe. This far-reaching and inclusive text is an invaluable resource for students and academics from media, communication studies, journalism, cultural studies and sociology backgrounds.
