News in a Globalized Society
This book is concerned with the role of news media in an increasingly globalized society. It tries to unravel how news as an institution and a genre is both affected by globalization and itself an agent of globalization. A recurrent theme in all of the articles is the impact of globalization on information supply, public debate, and the exercise of democracy. The articles are organized around four themes: Globalization and the role of news media; New media, global news, and democracy; Regionalization and domestication of global news, and War news in global media.
