"For keen insights into why news organizations are struggling so mightily to adapt to a networked environment, you won't do better than this splendid ethnographic study of the Philadelphia news 'ecosystem.' ... Ideas for additional empirical work abound throughout this book, from the influence of data metrics on news decisions to the evolving nature of news aggregation. And [Anderson's] application of the ethnographic method is an exemplar in itself." -- Jane Singer, Journalism: Theory, Practice, Criticism.
"This book is an excellent and ground-breaking contribution to the tradition of news ethnography." -- David Ryfe, Digital Journalism
Breaking down the walls of the traditional newsroom, Rebuilding the News traces the evolution of news reporting as it moves from print to online. As the business models of newspapers have collapsed, author C. W. Anderson chronicles how bloggers, citizen journalists, and social networks are implicated in the massive changes confronting journalism.
Through a combination of local newsroom fieldwork, social-network analysis, and online archival research, Rebuilding the News places the current shifts in news production in socio-historical context. Focusing on the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News, Anderson presents a gripping case study of how these papers have struggled to adapt to emerging economic, social, and technological realities.
As he explores the organizational, networked culture of journalism, Anderson lays bare questions about the future of news-oriented media and its evolving relationship with “the public” in the digital age.
