Overview

Ever since the invention of the telegraph, journalists have sought to remove the barriers of time and space. Today, we readily accepts that reporters can jet quickly to a distant location and broadcast instantly from a satellite-connected, video-enabled cell phone hanging from their belts.

Overview

Ever since the invention of the telegraph, journalists have sought to remove the barriers of time and space. Today, we readily accepts that reporters can jet quickly to a distant location and broadcast instantly from a satellite-connected, video-enabled cell phone hanging from their belts. But how that live news coverage is possible from virtually anywhere, is foreign correspondence better? From Pigeons to News Portals, edited by David D. Perlmutter and John Maxwell Hamilton, scholars and journalist survey, probe, and demystify the new foreign correspondence that has emerged from rapidly changing media technology. These distinguished authors challenge long-held beliefs about foreign news coverage, not the least of which is whether, in our interconnected world, such a thing as "foreign news" even exists anymore. Essays explore the ways people have used new media technology-from satellites and cell phones to the Internet-to affect content, delivery modes, and amount and style of coverage. This provocative volume offers valuable insights and analyses to help us better understand the evolving state of foreign news.
