This book focuses on news as presented on the Internet and how it is approached and influenced by audiences online. More specifically, it examines online news with news provided by other media (newspapers, magazines, and broadcast radio and television). It also looks at meanings in the patterns of online news provision. It also considers how people are getting and creating news online. What are the social and political implications of such news in a modern democracy? The chapter also discusses the relationship between information and citizenship; some attributes of the Internet that are most relevant for the creation, presentation, and consumption of news; and the role of technology in the relationship among citizens, news, and society.
