About this book

This book explores journalism practices and the dynamics of international news media in Korea, and examines the ways in which Korean journalists and foreign correspondents cover news stories about the Korean conflict. It notably explores news gathering practices concerning the Korean conflict, and investigates factors that influence journalists’ news production through interview with foreign correspondents including bureau chiefs from news outlets as diverse as AP, Reuters, The New York Times, the BBC, Le Figaro, and the Mainichi Shimbun. Extending its coverage to provide a rationale for the proliferation of new media both from encoders and decoders’ perspectives, and drawing on lively empirical data to examine the processes of news production, the book addresses how international media impacts on the stability and security in the region under the influence of the competing superpowers – the United States and China.

Reviews

“As a long-term international news focus, the Korean conflict provides a lens into journalistic perspective. Using the Hierarchy of Influences model, Miri Moon sorts out the rich array of content and interview data to reveal the factors underlying news frames.” (Stephen D. Reese, Jesse H. Jones Professor, University of Texas at Austin, USA)

“In this wide-ranging book, Miri Moon analyses how US, UK and South Korean journalists portrayed the conflicted history of the Korean peninsula. Based in rich investigation of the international journalistic field, this is a landmark contribution to global journalism studies.” (Nick Couldry, Professor, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK, and author of Media Society World)

“This is a useful comparative study of international journalists, how the news is reported, and what influences journalism, centered on Korea, that will be of interest to researchers around the world.” (James Curran, Professor, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK)
