Produktbeschreibung
As news organizations cut correspondent posts and foreign bureaux, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have begun to expand into news reporting. Why and how do journalists use the photographs, video, and audio that NGOs produce? What effects does this have on the kinds of stories told about Africa? And how have these developments changed the nature of journalism and NGO-work?



Who's Reporting Africa Now?: Non-Governmental Organizations, Journalists, and Multimedia is the first book to address these questions-using frank interviews and internal documents to shed light on the workings of major news organizations and NGOs, collaborating with one another in specific news production processes. These contrasting case studies are used to illuminate the complex moral and political economies underpinning such journalism, involving not only NGO press officers and journalists but also field workers, freelancers, private foundations, social media participants, businesspeople, and advertising executives.

Rezensionen
"Kate Wright's Who's Reporting Africa Now? is a clear and thought-provoking work on the connections between NGOs, journalists, and news organizations. Using a case-studies approach, the book, the first of its kind, analyzes how multiple media producers within and outside of sub-Saharan African countries shape the production of international news about Africa. The book moves the study of NGO-journalist relations in a new theoretical direction using moral economy theory and contributes directly to our understanding of complicated international news production practices. I highly recommend this book, particularly for students and scholars interested in journalism, media studies, international politics, and sociology." -Shakuntala Rao, Professor of Communication Studies, State University of New York
