Mister Pulitzer and the Spider

Modern News from Realism to the Digital

A spidery network of mobile online media has supposedly changed people, places, time, and their meanings. A prime case is the news. Digital webs seem to have trapped "legacy media," killing off newspapers and journalists' jobs. Did news businesses and careers fall prey to the digital "Spider"? To solve the mystery, Kevin Barnhurst spent thirty years studying news going back to the realism of the 1800s. The usual suspects--technology, business competition, and the pursuit of scoops--are only partly to blame for the fate of news. The main culprit is modernism from the "Mister Pulitzer" era, which transformed news into an ideology called "journalism." News is no longer what audiences or experts imagine. Stories have grown much longer over the past century and now include fewer events, locations, and human beings. Background and context rule instead. News producers adopted modernism to explain the world without recognizing how modernist ideas influence the knowledge they produce. When webs of networked connectivity sparked a resurgence in realist stories, legacy news stuck to big-picture analysis that can alienate audience members accustomed to digital briefs.

In the past quarter of a century, journalism education, communication theory, and "newswork" have all changed markedly. This book reexamines MacLean's ideas in light of these changes. Student and teacher, administrator and newsman -- all will find a treasure of information for discussion. As the editors Luigi Manca and Gail W. Pieper comment in their introductory chapter: "[MacLean] envisioned a new kind of journalist, a heretic, who would facilitate the communication process within society by helping all citizens to be part of public discourse. . . . And we hope a reexamination of MacLean's vision of journalism, his "heresy, " will help initiate long-needed changes in the way teach -- and in the way we do -- journalism.

Es ist der heißeste Sommer, den die Menschen in England je erlebt haben. Seit Monaten hat es nicht mehr geregnet, in den Gärten verdorrt das Gras, und schon morgens liegt die Julihitze bleiern über London, als Robert Riordan wie jeden Tag das Haus verlässt, um die Zeitung zu holen. Doch er kehrt nicht zurück. Die Suche nach ihm zwingt die drei Kinder von Robert und Gretta zur Rückkehr in ihr Elternhaus: die seit Jahren zerstrittenen Schwestern Monica und Aoife sowie ihren Bruder Michael Francis. Alle drei haben mit privaten Krisen zu kämpfen, und die Sorge um den Vater sowie das plötzliche Aufeinandertreffen spitzen die Probleme und ihre Konflikte untereinander zu. Sie ahnen nicht, dass Gretta eine Erklärung für Roberts Verschwinden haben könnte, aber ihr Geheimnis nicht einmal jetzt preisgeben kann.

»Eddie Izzard ist der Jedi unter den Stand-Up-Comedians. Inspirierend, surreal, universal, visionär.« Michael Mittermeier Er liebt High Heels und lackierte Fingernägel. Er lief 27 Marathons an 27 Tagen, um an die Inhaftierung Mandelas zu erinnern.

Eddie Izzard, Humorgenie und Cross-Dresser, erzählt sein bewegtes Leben. In seiner Autobiographie »Believe Me« schildert der Entertainer lakonische, ergreifende und schreiend komische Episoden aus seinem Leben: von einer verlustreichen Kindheit, vom Entdecken einer komplizierten Sexualität, von ersten Comedy-Versuchen auf den Straßen Londons — und von seinem Plan, die Briten eines Tages zurück in die EU zu führen.
