Uncommon Ground – Rethinking the Human Place in Nature (Paper)
WikiLeaks is the most challenging journalistic phenomenon to have emerged in the digital era. It has provoked anger and enthusiasm in equal measure, from across the political and journalistic spectrum. WikiLeaks poses a series of questions to the status quo in politics, journalism and to the ways we understand political communication. It has compromised the foreign policy operations of the most powerful state in the world, broken stories comparable to great historic scoops like the Pentagon Papers, and caused the mighty international news organizations to collaborate with this tiny editorial outfit. Yet it may also be on the verge of extinction. This is the first book to examine WikiLeaks fully and critically and its place in the contemporary news environment. The authors combine inside knowledge with the latest media research and analysis to argue that the significance of Wikileaks is that it is part of the shift in the nature of news to a network system that is contestable and unstable. Welcome to Wiki World and a new age of uncertainty.

A Place in History – Social & Monumantal Time in a Cretan Town (Paper)
Over-population and poor agricultural practices have been some of the factors blamed for environmental degradation that has been taking place for a number of years. The growth of population has led to an increase in demand for food with land remaining the same in size. This has pushed mainly farmers to look for more land to grow crops which has also led to forests destruction.As a result many ecosystems have been affected in the process. Global warming has also come in causing a rise in sea levels. The number of tsunamis taking place especially in Asia is a result of change in climate. The destruction of ecosystems and climate adaptation are some of the issues that need the attention of the population. But how will they know?This is where now environmental journalists are coming in to play a leading role to explain the science behind issues of climate change,adaptation, global warming, environmental degradation, and loss of biodiversity. This book, therefore, explains how journalists can make the environment news. It will help journalists explain a scientific jargon into a simple and clear language. The book is also a good reference point to environmental journalism teachers.
Stock market dynamics have drawn the attention of analysts from varied academic disciplines and commercial circles. The advent of online trading and real time facilities in the stock markets has fired a new field of interest in developing automatic trading agents that conduct trades in a relatively autonomous fashion under fixed strategies. This book examines a trading strategy based on analysis of external input in the form of online news. A machine-learning model is built using the reaction of stock markets to news items spread over a period of time. The news-based agent uses this model in real time to predict the price movement of stocks, and place orders accordingly. The performance the agent is evaluated by conducting controlled experiments with proven opponent strategies based on statistical models.

Flat Earth News: An Award-Winning Reporter Exposes Falsehood, Distortion and Propaganda in the Global Media
After years of working as a respected journalist, Nick Davies broke the unwritten rule of the media by investigating the practices of his fellow colleagues. In this eye-opening expose, Davies uncovers an industry awash in corruption and bias. His findings include the story of a prestigious Sunday newspaper that allowed the CIA to plant fiction in its columns; the newsroom that routinely rejects stories about black people; the respected paper that hired a professional fraudster to set up a front company to entrap senior political figures; as well as a number of newspapers that pay cash bribes to bent detectives. His research also exposes a range of national stories that were in fact pseudo events manufactured by the public relations industry and global news stories that were fiction generated by a machinery of international propaganda. The degree to which the media industry has affected government policy and perverted popular belief is also addressed. Gripping and though-provoking, this is an insider's look at one of the world's most tainted professions.
This work takes into account the forces globalization exerts on international news broadcasts primarily focusing on the invisible, but vital role translation plays in enabling the global news process to take place. Particular attention is given to elucidating possible reasons behind translation distortion that occurs when language is transferred from source text to target text. Research for this book revealed three primary causes of translation infidelity and are, therefore, explored, investigated, and analyzed in detail. First, significant evidence incriminates two of the three major international news agencies for not offering any type of translator training for anyone on their staff. Second, the Western Materialism-Eastern Spiritualism ontological dichotomy seems to be causing a natural distortion of fidelity to take place; especially regarding religiously-charged Arabic terrorist communiques. Third, a journalist''s personal biases— a product of engrained ideologies learned through one''s society, educational system, and language— consciously and unconsciously influence their writing choices.
This book aims to bridge the gap between the production of global news and the practices of translation by focusing mainly on television news translation, and expects to help understand how news translators in this context reproduce news stories in the process of news translation. The authors adopt the method of case study, using a foreign news desk in a certain news network in Taiwan as the object of this research and looking into the workings of the organization. The results of the existing study show that news translation should be considered a type of translation in a more generalized meaning, notwithstanding the fact that there are differences between news translation and general translation. On the other hand, in the process of production of global news, the news translators in television newsroom mainly take into consideration three factors: the footage, the length of news item, and the spoken language, which marks great distinctions from general translation.
Spreading the News – The American Postal System From Franklin to Moss (Paper)
The Power of News (Paper)
Since 1950s, journalism scholars and practitioners examining the gatekeeper functions of News Media sought to explain why some issues and events became newsworthy while others remained obscure. This work based on "News value theory" assumed that the more the news values a story had, the more its likeliness of reportage and placement in the newspaper. Remarkably, due to the emptiness in the African journalism literature, this work examined the predominant news values in the African press with a comparative analysis of Ugandan Newspapers. The author discovered that all news items analyzed had more than one news value. Similarly, the findings showed that news published in the Ugandan newspapers are more deviant and socially significant as reflected in the dominant news values explained in this book. The empirical findings demonstrated that Ugandan newspapers conceive the enhanced diversity of views in their news reportage.Results showed that 75% of the news analyzed were domestic news of which 53.7% focused on national issues. Whereas 36.8% of international news focused on Europe. This book provides meaningful information to journalism practitioners, Scholars and Communication Experts
