The constraints of news production and the consequent limitations of news result directly in dissatisfaction throughout news audiences. News stories are frequently found to be inadequately informative to the extent that journalism is more inclined to generate political disenchantment, rather than prompt its audiences to pursue a fully engaged level of political participation in their societies. Journalism and Political Exclusion provides a multi-method, integrated analysis of news production and news audiences, including a long-term study of community activists in a central Canadian city. During the seven-year fieldwork period, different groups of research participants completed questionnaires, wrote news diaries, and were interviewed in their homes while viewing network television newscasts. Clarke shows that frustrations with the informational limitations of television and other news media are accelerated among women and the working-class often lack opportunities to access alternative information sources. The critical contribution of journalism to the production and reproduction of ideas about social reality is frequently acknowledged and assumed yet rarely investigated and demonstrated. Through an examination of the everyday realities of both news production and news reception, Journalism and Political Exclusion also shows how the current "crises" of professional journalism heighten the level of political exclusion experienced by various social groups.

Social Inequalities, Media, and Communication: Theory and Roots provides a global analysis of the intersection of social inequalities, media, and communication. This book contains chapter contributions written by scholars from around the world who engage in country- and region-specific case studies of social inequalities in media and communication. The volume is a theoretical exploration of the classical, structuralist, culturalist, postmodernist, and postcolonial theoretical approaches to inequality and how these theoretical discourses provide critical understanding of social inequalities in relation to narratives shaped by media and communication experiences. The contributors provide class and gender analyses of media and culture, engage theoretical discourses of inequalities and capitalism in relation to communication technologies, and explore the cyclical relationship of theory and praxis in studying inequalities, media, and communication.

This book analyzes why we believe what we believe about politics, and how the answer affects the way democracy functions. It does so by applying social evolution theory to the relationship between the news media and politics, using the United States as its primary example. This includes a critical review and integration of the insights of a broad array of research, from evolutionary theory and political psychology to the political economy of media. The result is an empirically driven political theory on the media’s role in democracy: what role it currently plays, what role it should play, and how it can be reshaped to be more appropriate for its structural role in democracy.

Neue Mediengesetze und Technologien verändern das Radio in Westafrika. Tilo Grätz analysiert diesen Wandel am Beispiel der Aneignung von Radiotechnologien in der Republik Benin. Er zeigt: Die Prozesse vollziehen sich im Wechselspiel von Produzenten, Hörern und technischen Möglichkeiten unter dem Einfluss medien-politischer Institutionen. Es entwickeln sich lokale Radio-Kulturen, die sich in typischen Themen, Sendeformaten und Nutzungspraxen des Radios im Alltag manifestieren. Die erfolgreichsten Programme sind interaktiv und ermöglichen Diskussionen zu sozialen, politischen, aber auch persönlichen Problemen.

Wir leben in einer Zeit grundlegenden, vielfältigen und schnellen Wandels, in dessen Verlauf sich auch die Bedeutung der Kommunikationsmedien verändert. Es ist das Anliegen des vorliegenden Bandes, einen Metaprozeß "Mediatisierung von Kommunikation" theoretisch zu entwerfen und zu begründen, mit dem dieser gesellschaftliche Wandel analysiert werden kann. Der Band beruft sich dabei auf empirischen Studien über die computervermittelte Kommunikation und über die Weiterentwicklung der ‚alten' Medien. In Bezug auf diese empirischen Grundlagen wird ein handlungstheoretisch-konstruktivistisches Konzept von ‚Mediatisierung' entwickelt, in dessen Perspektive sich Einzelbeobachtungen, Ergebnisse empirischer Arbeiten und kommunikations- und medienwissenschaftliche Theoriestücke fruchtbar zusammendenken lassen.
