Show Summary Details


The aim of this chapter is to discuss the role of journalists as mediators and facilitators in a “global public sphere”. Central to this discussion is whether this new global space still upholds the notions of center versus periphery, and if, when applied to the field of journalism, we can talk about dominant journalistic practices.

Keywords: global public sphere; flow of information; journalists as mediators; coverage of the Iraq War
