MEDIA REVIEWS
"The authors do an excellent job situating their study and the concept of participation within the broader body of research and theory on journalism, but also offer useful insights into the practical realities of how journalists are addressing an increasingly active audience in the newsroom today." (Journalism, 23 February 2012) "Like its authors, half of whom are both journalists and scholars, the book is also a hybrid - on the one hand, it serves as a robust piece of empirical research and, on the other, it is an excellent textbook for journalism students. This is evidently a deliberate device by the authors who wish to make a contribution to knowledge without alienating potential readers. The book is written in clear, familiar English resembling more of a journalistic style than an academic one, and each chapter ends with questions inviting the reader (or lecturer) to discuss and probe issues. There is also an effective glossary which explains terms which may be unfamiliar to those starting out in the field." Intended primarily as a textbook - each chapter concludes with discussion questions - the volume provides an excellent starting point for examining the implications of new ways of collecting and disseminating what we call news." (Choice, 1 October 2011)
