'Only the polyglott Barbara Czarniawska, a keen ethnographer of organizations, could give us a picture of the production of news in the age of digital reproduction. By a close description of the process through which news agencies elaborate this exquisitely complex product - the piece of news - she manages to give us a realistic interpretation of what technology and globalization do to journalism. Far from indicating the end of the trade and the dissolution of its credibility, her careful and witty account shows the many ways in which authority of information may be regained. Walter Lippmann would have loved this book.' -- Bruno Latour, Sciences Po Paris, France
'TT, Ansa, Reuters are not intermediaries that transfer information to their clients, rather they are producers of the news. . . or better, in this book, they are fac(s)tories. This passionate journey into the management of overflow of news input and output starts with the question: when a flow is an overflow? How do people daily survive such overflow? Read the book and discover how the answer is simpler than expected!' -- Silvia Gherardi, University of Trento, Italy
