Editorial Reviews


"After Broadcast News does more than any book I know to explain why the old distinctions between news, opinion, and entertainment are breaking down and why these changes are not a catastrophe! Williams and Delli Carpini provide a powerful, critical revisionist history of journalism's so-called golden era, trimming it down to size as simply the latest - and not necessarily the greatest - 'media regime' since the dawn of American democracy. As economic, cultural, and technological forces create the conditions for a new order, the authors present ample evidence of talk show hosts, filmmakers and actors, comedians, musicians, bloggers, and engaged citizens making creative use of media for democratically-useful ends. Journalism will continue to have an important role to play. At the end of the day, though, what's really important is not who produces politically-relevant discourse, but simply that it is created and disseminated as widely as possible. This book will change the way you see the world. It's a compelling call to arms to stop fighting the last era's media battles in order to better direct the changes to come."
- Rodney Benson, New York University

"An insightful, well written and thoroughly researched analysis of what the rise of entertainment, the internet and digital media mean for the quality of journalism and democracy. While being firmly anchored to the US experience, it is highly relevant for Europe, Asia and elsewhere since we are all engulfed in a similar process of change."
- James Curran, Goldsmiths, University of London

"Political communication took place for most of the late twentieth century in a media environment dominated by professional journalistic gatekeepers, dedicated to norms of social responsibility, largely insulated from commercial pressures, and at the same time closely tied to established political elites. Over the past couple of decades, this 'media regime,' as Williams and Delli Carpini put it, has broken down, and a multitude of hybrid genres and competing gatekeepers with divergent motivations and ideologies have replaced the bounded, unified system of the previous era. We are still sorting out how to understand political communication in this new era, and Williams and Delli Carpini make a sophisticated, lively contribution to accomplishing this. It makes a big difference that they bring to this task a good sense of history, and put the most recent transformation of American political communication in the context of along and complex history of contention over the rules of the game for determining who gets to speak about politics and how."
- Daniel Hallin, University of California, San Diego

Book Description

Most people assume professional journalists are the legitimate source for political information and that the role of "good" citizens is to watch, read, or listen to the news. After Broadcast News shows that this model is only one among several that have existed in the United States; that while it has some valuable aspects, it also has very narrow notions of politically relevant information and the role of citizens; and that the new information environment (from the Internet to The Daily Show) makes these strengths and limitations clear.
