The Contemporary Contexts of Hybridity

Show Summary Details


Chapter 3 builds upon the themes of chapter 2 but goes beyond it to establish the contemporary context for the analyses of political communication that follow in chapters 4 to 9. This chapter sets the scene for these more detailed illustrations of the hybrid media system in Britain and the United States by focusing on the changing nature of audiences, shifting patterns of media use, the salient structural characteristics of broadcasting, newspaper, and online media, and the emergence of new hybrid forms of mediality.

Keywords: contexts; audiences; broadcasting; newspapers; online; media usage; mediality; hybridity; Britain; United States
