The Global Journalist in the 21st Century systematically assesses the demographics, education, socialization, professional attitudes and working conditions of journalists in various countries around the world. This book updates the original Global Journalist (1998) volume with new data, adding more than a dozen countries, and provides material on comparative research about journalists that will be useful to those interested in doing their own studies. The editors put together this collection working under the assumption that journalists' backgrounds, working conditions and ideas are related to what is reported (and how it is covered) in the various news media round the world, in spite of societal and organizational constraints, and that this news coverage matters in terms of world public opinion and policies. Outstanding features include: Coverage of 33 nations located around the globe, based on recent surveys conducted among representative samples of local journalists Comprehensive analyses by well-known media scholars from each country A section on comparative studies of journalists An appendix with a collection of survey questions used in various nations to question journalists As the most comprehensive and reliable source on journalists around the world, The Global Journalist will serve as the primary source for evaluating the state of journalism. As such, it promises to become a standard reference among journalism, media, and communication students and researchers around the world.

She finds that though most everyone vaguely believes that the world would be better with

Who Owns the World's Media?

Media Concentration and Ownership around the World

Media ownership and concentration has major implications for politics, business, culture, regulation, and innovation. It is also a highly contentious subject of public debate in many countries around the world. In Italy, Silvio Berlusconi's companies have dominated Italian politics. Televisa has been accused of taking cash for positive coverage of politicians in Mexico. Even in tiny Iceland, the regulation of media concentration led to that country's first and only public referendum. Who Owns the World's Media? moves beyond the rhetoric of free media and free markets to provide a dispassionate and data-driven analysis of global media ownership trends and their drivers. Based on an extensive data collection effort from scholars around the world, the book covers thirteen media industries, including television, newspapers, book publishing, film, search engines, ISPs, wireless telecommunication and others, across a ten to twenty-five year period in thirty countries. In many countries--like Egypt, China, or Russia--little to no data exists and the publication of these chapters will become authoritative resources on the subject in those regions. After examining each country, Noam and his collaborators offer comparisons and analysis across industries, regions, and development levels. They also calculate overall national concentration trends beyond specific media industries, the market share of individual companies in the overall national media sector, and the size and trends of transnational companies in overall global media. This definitive global study of the extent and impact of media concentration will be an invaluable resource for communications, public policy, law, and business scholars in doing research and also for media, telecom, and IT companies and financial institutions in the private sector.

Kubas bekannteste Kritikerin packt aus – Geschichten einer Generation zwischen Zensur und Zukunft Auf Kuba gilt sie als Staatsfeindin. Für das „Time Magazine” gehört sie zu den hundert einflussreichsten Menschen der Welt: Mit ihrem Blog "Generación Y" erreicht Yoani Sánchez weltweit ein Millionenpublikum. In "Cuba libre" erzählt sie die Wahrheit über das Leben auf Kuba, spricht offen über Zensur und Beschattung und bietet – fern jeder Reiseführerromantik – Einblicke in eine Welt, wie es sie wahrscheinlich nicht mehr lange geben wird ... Wie lebt es sich in einem der letzten sozialistischen Länder wirklich? Ob absurdes Revolutionstheater, lebenslang kaputte Fahrstühle oder der Kampf um die Lebensmittelration – Yoani Sánchez beschreibt den alltäglichen Wahnsinn in einem Land, das seit Jahrzehnten die Revolution probt und in dem Castros Parolen nach wie vor so präsent sind wie anderswo Coca-Cola-Reklame. Doch gleichzeitig ist klar, dass es früher oder später zu einem politischen Wandel auf Kuba kommen wird. Teils witzig, teils nachdenklich, aber nie ideologisch, spiegelt „Cuba libre” das Gefühl einer ganzen Generation in einem Land am Scheideweg.

Volume 2 summary: Online journalism has taken center stage in debates about the future of news. Instead of speculating, this volume offers rich empirical evidence about actual developments in online newsrooms. The authors use ethnographic methodologies to provide a vivid, close analysis of processes like newsroom integration, the transition of newspaper and radio journalists to digital multimedia production, the management of user-generated content, the coverage of electoral campaigns, the pressure of marketing logics, the relationship with bloggers or the redefinition of news genres. -- Publisher description.

Scannell entwickelt anhand der historischen Entwicklungen in Nordamerika und Europa eine sehr zugängliche, systematische und gleichzeitig differenzierte Analyse der verschiedenen Zugänge der Beschäftigung mit Medien- und Kommunikation.
