Summary This book combines media studies and social interactionalist discursive research on the news media, and bridges the gap between the analyses of texts and their production, and studies of audience reception and behavior. By exploding the sender-receiver model, this book prepares the ground for the construction of new discourse as social interaction primarily among journalists and newsmakers as a community.
