Environment Reporters in the 21st Century is the story of a relatively new journalistic beat, environmental reporting. This book explores the development of the environmental beat as a specialty during the last thirty years. It also discusses broader trends within American journalism resulting from technological changes that challenge traditional mediums, especially newspapers and magazines. The book is divided into three parts. The first reviews the literature and explains the methodology. The second describes the results of the authors' research. The third provides in-depth accounts of environment reporters at work. A final chapter puts the research in historical perspective, viewing it in terms of the economic decline of the newspaper business and of local television news. Journalists mediate a constant struggle among thousands of environmental activists, corporate public relations people, government officials, and scientists to shape environmental reporting. This volume tells the story of environmental reporting imaginatively and innovatively.

Intermedial Representations of 9/11 in U.S. American and German Newspapers

Author: Susanne Ehrenreich-Blažeković

For many weeks, the terrorist attacks of 9/11 dominated the newspapers which covered the consequences with an unprecedented immediateness. This study looks at diverging representations of 9/11 in U.S. and German newspapers (New York Times, Washington Post, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Sueddeutsche Zeitung) and explores effects on its possible readerships. The impact of the attacks, forms of heroism, the enactment of leadership, various demonstrations of patriotism and grief as well as the textual and visual presentation of the attacks are analyzed in detail. These intermedial representations reaffirm or contest U.S. American grand narratives. While the German newspapers tend to focus on information and analysis, the U.S. papers tend to strengthen shattered U.S. American identity constructions. The study is based on nearly 2,000 newspaper articles and documents the wide scope of topics prevalent in the post-9/11 newspaper coverage.

“我们以比较高的分数考入了新闻学院,但是到了学校之后和其他的文科生,如学习法律、经济、哲学这些专业的相比,我们的书比较容易读,老师不讲也看得懂,觉得自己的智慧或者学习潜力没有办法发挥。”这是新闻专业的大一学生对中国人民大学新闻学院院长赵启正教授的诉说。当赵启正在清华大学眉头紧锁地讲完这个小故事的时候,坐在台下后排旁听的学生们深有同感地点着头,而在座的来自全国31所新闻学院的院长和系主任们表情凝重。“孩子们的话童言无忌,不能说孩子们说错了,或者不应该提出这样的质疑。这反映了现在的大学老师们和他们的教学存在着改革的必要性。”

Und warum glauben kluge, kritische Menschen hanebüchene Dinge, nur weil »die Wissenschaft« sie angeblich bewiesen hat?
