News fatigue?

In Audience, Journalism, Media Criticism, New Media, Youth on July 21, 2010 at 2:29 pm

That effort includes what The AP calls "1-2-3 filing," starting with a news alert headline for breaking news, followed by a short present-tense report that is usable on the Web and by broadcasters. The third step is to add details and format stories in ways most appropriate for various news platforms.

Dan Kennedy (assistant professor of journalism at Northeastern University; 그의 블로그–에 의하면 미디어 비평의 크게 두가지 기능을 한다고 한다. 먼저 “저널리즘” 그 자체로서의 미디어 비평. 하지만 뉴미디어의 등장과 함께–비록 연결고리가 명확하진 않지만–미디어 비평의 또 다른 한면,  즉 주창(advocacy)언론으로서의 미디어 비평에 대한 역할이 흥미롭다. 현재 미디어 비평의 당파성에 관한 페이퍼를 준비중이라 더욱 관심이 가는 대목이다.
