Constructing Reality

Published: September 12, 2008, Author: JayTaber

In The Changing Context of News Work, Mark Deuze examines journalism as a social institution. As Deuze observes, in the era of the Internet, journalism has turned to interpreting rather than reporting, reflecting an “arrogant occupational ideology out of touch with the lived reality of its constituencies”. Within this new media ecosystem, Deuze notes, “media makers and users coexist, collaborate, and compete in the mutual construction of reality”–a reality corporate media no longer controls despite its best editorial efforts to manage our understanding of the world.
