Different Countries, Different Journalists? A Cross-National Comparison of Editors of Foreign News on Television

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



Abstract:

This final paper goes beyond the bilateral “confrontations” between editors and their products and the public in order to identify underlying factors influencing their decisions in general. Based on the entire corpus of interview transcripts, the analysis will account for everything said by the respondents with reference to their self-conception, their vision of norms and resources and other factors influencing their work as gatekeepers. Recurring patterns in the statements will be grouped into a typology, which is then considered with respect to different journalistic cultures – national, transnational, structural (public vs. private), or other. Given the rich data gathered on the journalists’ careers and positions in their respective media organizations, as well as detailed insights on their structures and inner workings, this information will be related to the above-mentioned differences and variations. Differences among types of respondents are visible through their specific perceptions of the world and their audiences, as well as the selection criteria and the general understanding of journalism in their societies. Obvious discrepancies between the empirical findings of the content analysis, the survey and the journalists’ viewpoints, as elaborated in the previous presentations, significantly highlight the differences among various types of journalists. Given the many levels on which differences occur we also provide a tentative answer to the question to what extent structural or national factors are actually responsible for a different perspective on foreign news in TV and to what extent these differences are idiosyncratic to individual journalists.
