The Sociology of News / Edition 1

A personal, trenchant, and comprehensive account of the contemporary news media.The Sociology of News reviews and synthesizes not only what is happening to journalism but also what is happening to the scholarly understanding of journalism. In the Second Edition, each chapter of the book has been updated to account for the radical changes that have reshaped the news industry over the last decade. With a new chapter on the sharp contraction of the news business in the United States since 2007, The Sociology of News examines journalism as a social institution and analyzes the variety of forces and factors—economic, technological, political, cultural, organizational—that shape the news media today.
