From the Orient to the Occident: An analysis of the underlying global media discourse

A new global “media ecology” is currently emerging, with political and economic powers in non-Western parts of the world, such as India and China, playing a more substantive and independent role in the global media sphere (Khorana 2012, p.39). 770 more words


Road to Servitude reblogged this on jonathan1723 and commented:

As regards the following quotation: "With the growth in media power accruing outside the West, the challenge will be for these new media capitals not to mimic Western media but to position themselves as global players, developing a cosmopolitan orientation by overcoming difference and diversity while reviving serious journalism free from the implicit cultural stereotypes evident in existing media discourse." This reads to me as "overcoming partisanship" via an abstract ideal of universality and impartiality. The article is certainly a thought-provoking one; but while objectivity can be a very good thing, I doubt that a cosmopolitan "impartiality" is likely to be any more authentically impartial than the "International" (sic) community" and "International (sic) Criminal Court," which latter both primarily serve the interests of selected individual persons from relatively dominant countries. However, it will be interesting to see whether any Chinese media outlets will, like Russia Today, make an impact in English-speaking countries; or indeed France, Germany and other areas.
