Introduction

Digital technology has changed the way news is produced, packaged, distributed, consumed and used by readers and audiences. This module will introduce students to that media environment by letting them start to address the implications of some of the forces altering the foundations of some of the creative industries, while providing a grounding in some analyses of news media.

The module will introduce students to contemporary debates about the possibilities and challenges, and cultural and political impact, of online news and social media. It will situate this in an introduction to some basic issues concerning the mass media in Britain, both offline and online. It introduces and demonstrates varying commercial, structural and cultural differences between different news media and the products they generate, who owns and controls them, how they are regulated and how these factors have influenced their content, impact and reception.
