Disrupting Chinese Journalism provides a rich insight into the disruptive effects of digital technologies – especially smart phones – on the Chinese print media market.
Pulling from an extensive corpus of original research, including some 191 face-to-face interviews with managers and journalists, and a content analysis of some 4000 print news reports, Haiyan Wang examines how Chinese legacy newspapers have responded to the changing digital media environment, including by adapting their organizational structures, revenue models, and journalistic practices. This book also points to how the government has taken a more interventionist stance on editorial content, and how this has further complicated the digital transitions of the Chinese media.
This book is an invaluable resource for students of media studies, journalism, Chinese area studies, and digital technology.
