Media Globalization and Digital Journalism in Malaysia : Network Newswork (Hardcover) (Amira Firdaus)
About this item
User-driven networked sources such as images, blogs or social media-sites are often incorporated into traditional news coverage. This book analyses networked forms of journalistic production at traditional news organizations and their conventional news channels. It examines current transformations to the norms, practices and values of conventional news production.
Drawing upon a recent global-comparative turn in journalism studies and parallel efforts to de-Westernize communication theory, this book suggests an innovative ‘glocal’ comparative approach to analyse network newswork among global, transnational, and local news organizations, including Al Jazeera and Bernama TV, located within the same geographical locality, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This book presents an empirically-grounded conceptual framework for exploring and understanding recent transformations that user-driven networked resources bring to professional journalists’ daily work of producing news. The author uncovers the invisible forces and processes influencing the integration of networked informational sources into professional journalistic routines within varied journalistic settings and news organizations. A fresh perspective on the analysis of globalization in the media and a useful guide for gaining access into media organizations and securing cooperation of organizational members for research, this book will be of interest to researchers in the field of Asian Media and Communication Studies, Journalism Studies, Political Communication and Sociology of Journalism.
