about this item

Mediated City begins by asking: how does news circulate in a major post-industrial city? To answer, Stephen Coleman analyzes a wide-range of practices involved in producing, circulating, and consuming news, and he examines the various ways and mediums through which individuals and groups may find out about, follow, or discuss local issues and events. He directly critiques the assumptions  of many scholars about the centrality of certain news media, and he shows that questions about what news really is and what types of media constitute and deliver it truly matter. The first book to critically trace the patterns of news circulation within a city,Mediated City is poised to radically change how media scholars consider the local transmission and function of information.Mediated City begins by asking: how does news circulate in a major post-industrial city?
