9781433110436: The Newsphere: Understanding the News and Information Environment

This book balances critical theory and professional practice to create specific strategies that result in more effective and enlightened news production and consumption. Emerging from the integral theories of Teilhard de Chardin and embracing Neil Postman’s media ecology, the reception theories of John Fiske, and the work of many contemporary scholars, The Newsphere constructs a solid theoretical, historical, and practical framework for news as ecology. It illuminates how stories emerge and evolve across digital networks and complex systems and examines the historical and theoretical forces that are precipitating the decay of the traditional American news and information structure. This book is an exciting and progressive foundation text for introductory journalism and mass communication courses, with applications in advanced reporting, new media, news literacy, media ethics, and political science classes. The Newsphere will inspire its readers to move beyond the conventional and to embrace the new news, a dynamic network of unlimited participation.

Review:

«With her new book, ‘The Newsphere’, Christine M. Tracy has provided a progressive take on the medium of the news by tapping into two related veins – media ecology and the philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin. Her treatment of the news is both new and newsworthy.» (Robert K. Logan, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Toronto, and Chief Scientist of The Strategic Innovation Lab, Ontario College of Art and Design)
«Christine M. Tracy’s ‘The Newsphere’ is media ecology for the 99%. She provides the context and the tools for citizens to make news while making sense of the news. In an era of media consolidation, blatant propaganda masquerading as news, and the collapse of conventional newsonomics, Tracy gives readers the concepts they need to be brighter lights in the media firmament.» (Steve Breyman, Associate Professor, Department of Science and Technology Studies, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)
