Beyond Watchdogs and Mouthpieces: Taking the State-Owned Press Seriously

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Recent studies indicate news organizations impacted by the state serve more countries and a greater proportion of the global population than privately-owned news organizations. This article argues for more globally-inclusive journalism research that includes state-owned news media. A context-analytical framework for the study of press systems is presented that goes beyond state-reporter relations to include press ownership differences as one variable in big picture studies of society-state-press relations. The first and second parts of the paper make the case for scholarly attention to state-owned news organizations. The third part uses empirical data to investigate if representations of Darfur designed for two distinct political-linguistic constituencies by two different state-owned weeklies in Egypt are monolithically focused on the party line. Findings show one common dimension of the representations in both papers reflected government policy and several others differed, similar to differences in the privately-owned press anywhere.
