What purpose does the news media serve in contemporary North American society? In this collection of essays, experts from both the United States and Canada investigate this question, exploring the effects of media concentration in democratic systems. Specifically, the scholars collected here consider, from a range of vantage points, how corporate and technological convergence in the news industry in the United States and Canada impacts journalism's expressed role as a medium of democratic communication.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Converging Media, Diverging Politics brings together important research that moves beyond documenting a crucial historical period; it also bravely and actively engages a politicized vision for a news media system that could do more. * H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online *
These days people think about the news media the way they think about the weather-you can complain all you want but there is nothing you can do about it. This book confronts this view by offering a definitive study of the news media in the U.S. and Canada, from newspapers to the 'net, and documents clearly and compellingly what people are doing to challenge the power of media giants and bring about genuine media democracy. -- Vincent Mosco, Canada Research Chair in Communication and Society, Queen's University
