Order Description


‘Newsrooms, like factory floors, have been a laboratory for technological innovation and a battleground of economic and social interests for over a hundred years; current arguments concerning specific adjustments of the editorial workforce to electronic news processing technologies continue the traditional confrontation between news workers and the management of media industries’ (Hardt 1990: 355).
