ABSTRACT. Alleyne holds that news media have derived power from their ability to determine the definition of news. Meikle writes that news coverage becomes "conversational", developing a form of ever-unfinished media. Hartley says that television provides a mechanism for communicating across class, gender, ethnic, national, and other boundaries. Gans says that ideally the news should be omniperspectival. Turner's study responds to what is regarded as a widespread critique of the phenomenon of tabloidization in television news and current affairs.
