Overview

Three U. of Miami communication professors provide a state-of-the-art assessment of the newest medium of mass communication, online news. The volume examines subjects including who's producing online news and what the legal issues are; who's consuming online news; what the content is—including issues of credibility, users' perceptions of online news coverage, and community building through online news sites; and how news is being communicated through alternative venues such as chat rooms. The text is appropriate for students and researchers in journalism, mass communications, new media, and related areas. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
