Description: The World News Prism enjoys a well-earned reputation for excellence in its in-depth analysis of the changing role of transnational news media in the 21st-century globalized world and its impact on rapidly changing news events. The eighth edition of this classic text is fully revised to reflect recent and ongoing global media events. The authors expand their discussion of news systems in developing nations, comparing media growth in India and Africa, and look at the situation in China to discuss the impact of digital media on traditional societies. New topics and concepts explored include the inability of government to control groups formed by social media, the frustrating attempts of authoritarian states to control information, and the struggle of traditional media organizations to locate viable business models; as well as the inevitable shift in the global struggle for freedom of expression--which has gone from the press to the Internet. A new chapter dedicated to evolving media in Egypt, Tunisia, and elsewhere in the Middle East explores the role of the Internet, cell phones, and Al Jazeera in facilitating momentous political change in the region. The book also provides important updates on the decline of print media in the West and the challenges this poses to global reporting now and for the future. Combining scholarly insights with a concise and accessible writing style, The World News Prism: Challenges of Digital Communication lends remarkable clarity to the fog of todays global information revolution.
