Using the Nordic media model as an empirical backdrop, Journalism Between the State and the Market defines and analyses journalism’s fundamental problem – its shifting location between the state and the market.
This book examines how this distance is decreasing as journalism steps closer to both the market (algorithmically monetizing audiences) and the state (lobbying governments for subsidies and attacking public service broadcasting). The book analyses journalism’s negotiated position between the market and the state in the age of disruptions, offering a theoretical foundation that seeks to account for the structural conditions of journalism in the digital age.
For scholars, graduates and students in journalism, news sociology, and media and communication studies, Journalism Between the State and the Market provides a theoretical perspective that can be used as a valuable tool when studying and observing the current developments in journalism.
