Western Journalism’s “Other”: The Legacy of the Cold War in the Study of Media Systems

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



Abstract:

When discussing the critiques of the New York Times made by both the political left and the right, Michael Schudson stated that “the New York Times has never intended to be anything like the late, unlamented Pravda.” In Schudson's comments, the Cold War “Other” encapsulated invocations of socialist, communist and Soviet “Others ” and defined what Western journalism is by what it is not. This paper draws on the tensions implicit in categorizing journalistic practice as "us" or "other" and, building on the theoretical insights of scholars such as Fredrik Barth and Edward W. Said, argues that the uses, invocations and constructions of the Cold War “Other” in the construction of a coherent and meaningful definition of Western journalism, and in the explication and justification of journalistic practice therein, constitutes a problematic guide in thinking about the development of journalism in nations that were historically part of this "Other."
