ABSTRACT. This paper presents the results of a survey illustrating the rise of a global communications infrastructure, and the imaginative content and cultural uses of television. Keane holds that global media networks foster a common sense of worldly interdependence. Reese notes that a globalized journalism is increasingly not a respecter of national boundaries. Ross focuses on how television programs and entire networks work to organically invite in viewers. Schaap et al. note that the influence of television news is something in which meaning construction by the viewers plays a prominent role. Hartley points out that television needs to be understood via the creativity and imagination of its viewers as a complex adaptive system. (pp. 185–190)
