This book combines media studies and linguistics with theories of national and supranational identity to offer an interdisciplinary approach to the study of European identity/ies and news discourses. Taking representations of ´Islamist terrorism´ and Turkey´s accession to the European Union as case studies, it analyses the discursive construction of supranational European identity through the discursive distinction of ´Us´ and ´Them´. Moreover, it compares the media´s representations of the ´Other´ in different socio-political moments in Europe- from times of European integration (2004-5) to the European dystopia (2015-16) through the discourse analysis of specific Greek, British and French newspapers. This timely work synthesizes classic argumentative approaches and Gramscian thought in the study of media discourses by focusing on the Aristotelian concept of topos and introducing the concept of ´hegemonic knowledge´. This pioneering work will appeal to scholars across the fields of linguistics, social anthropology, European politics, and media studies.
Das Internet war einmal ein großes Versprechen von Teilhabe, Aufklärung und Demokratie. Aktuell droht seine liberale Ursprungsidee in ihr Gegenteil umzuschlagen, das Netz bietet Ausgrenzung, Parallelrealitäten und demokratiefeindlicher Stimmungsmache eine Plattform. Fake News und Manipulation greifen um sich, Meinungsroboter ziehen Debatten in ihre Richtung, Hassbotschaften finden ihren Weg in den politischen Mainstream, Geheimdienste mischen bei Desinformation und Überwachung mit. Aus den vermeintlichen Heilsbringern des Silicon Valley sind unheimliche Giganten geworden, die die Regulierungsbehörden auf den Plan rufen. Gleichzeitig sind diese Auswüchse ein Spiegel zunehmender gesellschaftlicher Polarisierung, vielleicht aber auch ihr Katalysator. Was sind die gesellschaftlichen und technischen Hintergründe dieser Entwicklung? Warum verhalten sich Menschen online anders als offline? Was kann man gegen Manipulation und Hass tun? Ist das Internet überhaupt regulierbar? Der vierteBand der Reihe ´´MedienKulturen´´ vereint zu diesen Fragen Essays, Analysen und internationale Perspektiven von Wissenschaftlern, Journalisten und Netzaktivisten.
The one real difference between the American press and the Soviet state newspaper Pravda was that the Russian people knew they were being lied to. To expose the lies our media tell us today, controversial journalist James O´Keefe created Project Veritas, an independent news organization whose reporters go where traditional journalists dare not. Their investigative work - equal parts James Bond, Mike Wallace, and Saul Alinsky - has had a consistent and powerful impact on its targets. In American Pravda, the listener is invited to go undercover with these intrepid journalists as they infiltrate political campaigns, unmask dishonest officials, and expose voter fraud. A rollicking adventure story on one level, this audiobook also serves as a treatise on modern media, arguing that establishment journalists have a vested interest in keeping the powerful comfortable and the people misinformed. This audiobook not only contests the false narratives frequently put forth by corporate media; it documents the consequences of telling the truth in a world that does not necessarily want to hear it. O´Keefe´s enemies attack with lawsuits, smear campaigns, political prosecutions, and false charges in an effort to shut down Project Veritas. For O´Keefe every one of these attacks is a sign of success. American Pravda puts the myths and misconceptions surrounding O´Keefe´s activities to rest and will make you rethink every word you hear in the so-called mainstream press. 1. Language: English.

A celebration of the acclaimed news program Democracy Now! and the extraordinary heroes who have moved our democracy forward. In 1996 Amy Goodman started a radio show called Democracy Now! to focus on the issues that are underreported or ignored by mainstream news coverage. Shortly after September 11, 2001, they were broadcasting on television every weekday. Today it is the only public media in the US that airs simultaneously on satellite and cable television, radio, and the Internet. Now Amy and her journalist brother, David, share stories of the progressive heroes - the whistleblowers, the organizers, the protestors - who have brought about remarkable, often invisible change over the last two decades in seismic ways. This book looks back over the past 20 years of Democracy Now! and considers that as the courts and government abdicate their responsibilities, it has fallen to ordinary people to hold the powerful to account. Amy gives voice to these leaderful - not leaderless - movements: the countless charismatic leaders who are taking to the streets in Ferguson, Staten Island, Wall Street, and other places where people are rising up to demand justice. This is the guiding principle of Democracy Now!, which is front and center in this powerful, important work. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amy Goodman.
