Actor‐Networking the News
Abstract:To date, journalists and most of those who study them remain wedded to a deeply modern understanding of the profession, one in which firm analytical borders separate news and newsmakers, reporters and audience, press and politics. New media technologies have begun to corrode these boundaries in practice, however. With its emphasis on socio‐technical hybrids, actor‐network theory offers a powerful tool for analyzing shifts in the practice of journalism under new technological conditions.
