Abstract

Drawing on extensive empirical research in North and South America as well as Europe, The News Gap exposes the stark differences between the information preferences and priorities of journalists and of their audiences. It identifies a “gap” between the supply and demand of news that has implications for the media industry, policy on media plurality, and the public service function of the media. The book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of news content in today’s converged media landscape says LSE’s Svenja Ottovordemgentschenfelde. The News Gap – When the Information Preferences of the Media and the Public Diverge. Pablo Javier Boczkowski and Eugenia Michelstein. MIT Press. November 2013.
