Environment, Media And Communication, Anders Hansen 2009 University of Leicester

Environment, Media And Communication, Anders Hansen

Anders Hansen

Communication about ‘the environment’ in and through a broad array of news, advertising, art and entertainment media is one of the major sources of public and political understanding of definitions, issues and problems associated with the environment. Environment, Media and Communication examines the social, cultural and political roles of the media as a public arena for images, representations, definitions and controversy regarding the environment.

The book starts by discussing and outlining a framework for analyzing media and communication roles in the emergence of the environment and environmental problems as issues for public and political concern. It proceeds to examine who ...

Mass Media Coverage Of Global Warming: An Update., John Fisher 2009 Utah Valley University

Mass Media Coverage Of Global Warming: An Update., John Fisher

Dr. John R. Fisher

A consensus may no longer exist about the causes of climate change. Only last year most media and many people supported the view that climate change was caused by people’s use of fossil fuels. However, the public view of global warming appears to have changed. Much of this change in people’s attitudes came from media coverage. This was augmented by concern for the economy and the effect of global warming legislation on the economy.

While few studies exist of mass media saturation using the diffusion of innovation model, research of global warming coverage by Dispensa and Brulle (2003 ...

Young Women Venture Out On Their Own, Lindsay Lazarski 2009 City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism

Young Women Venture Out On Their Own, Lindsay Lazarski

Lindsay A Lazarski

As both the national and New York City economies have hit rock bottom, and the chances of finding rewarding employment has become almost obsolete, a few ambitious, young women have created their own dream jobs, working and answering only for themselves. “We have some data that slightly more younger women (under 35) are moving into entrepreneurships, compared to men of the same age group,” said Gwen Martin, executive director at the Center for Women's Business Research.

A Survey Report On Chinese Journalists In China, Fen Lin 2009 City University of Hong Kong

A Survey Report On Chinese Journalists In China, Fen Lin

Fen Lin

This report presents a portrait of contemporary liberal Chinese journalists. Compared with the national average ten years ago, a typical journalist in Guangzhou is younger, better-educated and more likely to be female, and less likely to be a Communist Party member. The survey shows that the literati value coexists with both the modern professional and Party journalism value during the current journalistic professionalization. Such coexistence results in a complexity in journalists' attitude and behavior. Journalists tend to be inactively liberal: possessing liberal attitudes but not engaging themselves in action. The survey also reports evidence on the contingency of journalistic behaviour ...

Everything But "Censorship" : How U.S. Newspapers Have Framed Student Free Speech And Press, 1969-2008, Megan Fromm 2009 University of Maryland - College Park

Everything But "Censorship" : How U.S. Newspapers Have Framed Student Free Speech And Press, 1969-2008, Megan Fromm

Megan Fromm

Legal scholars rarely focus on student First Amendment rights, and general public understanding of the extent of these rights is vague at best. While media scholars have focused much attention on newspaper coverage of more mainstream issues, no notable attention has been given to examining the way news media cover student First Amendment rights. As future leaders in a democracy, students at public schools are inculcated with notions of civic duty, independent thinking, and a respect for the freedoms that distinguish the U.S. from other countries. However, many public school students are consistently denied their rights to the very ...

Newsgathering And Privacy: Expanding Ethics Codes To Reflect Change In The Digital Media Age, Ginny Whitehouse 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Newsgathering And Privacy: Expanding Ethics Codes To Reflect Change In The Digital Media Age, Ginny Whitehouse

Ginny Whitehouse

Media ethics codes concerning privacy must be updated considering the ease with which information now can be gathered from social networks and disseminated widely. Existing codes allow for deception and privacy invasion in cases of over-riding public need when no alternate means are available but do not adequately define what constitutes need or alternate means, or weigh in the harm such acts

do to the public trust and the profession. Building on the eth ics theories of Sissela Bok and Helen Nissenbaum, balancing tests can be developed under a mixed-rule deontology that confines online misrepresentation and

exposing the private information ...
