From the Introduction: The days of relying on the newspaper delivery boy to deliver information to households are long over. The Internet and mobile phone technologies have changed how information is gathered and delivered in ways that can't be overstated. They have allowed people worldwide to gather, share, and access news as it's happening. The Internet and sites such as Facebook and YouTube have made it possible for anyone to reach a broad, global audience and for anyone with a computer to be a news provider. There is an enormous amount of content available online, on just about any topic. Viewers and readers must weed through this information to find sources that they trust and that they can rely on, in the same way that people read their daily paper or watch their favorite television news broadcast. The difference is the people who write for newspapers or television news are journalists-people whose job it is to research and deliver news to the public. When you go online, you find content from lots of different people, many of whom are not actual journalists, but interested citizens who want to share information with the public, much like journalists do. These non-journalists include writers of blogs and producers of independent news stories-people who are not working for official media outlets like established news channels or publications. Here, we will look at the differences between journalists and this new breed of news providers. We will discuss what professional standards journalists must follow that bloggers are not bound to, as well as what laws protect journalists but do not offer the same protection for non-journalists. Also discussed will be the roles different types of news providers serve in society, and how our definition of journalism is changing. The purpose is to help consumers of online news better understand where the news they read is coming from, what news they can trust, how to tell the difference between fact and opinion, and how to put together everything they read to form their own ideas about current events-and then perhaps even to share their ideas in their own online publications or blogs.

Intermedial Representations of 9/11 in U.S. American and German Newspapers

For many weeks, the terrorist attacks of 9/11 dominated the newspapers which covered the consequences with an unprecedented immediateness. This study looks at diverging representations of 9/11 in U.S. and German newspapers (New York Times, Washington Post, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Sueddeutsche Zeitung) and explores effects on its possible readerships. The impact of the attacks, forms of heroism, the enactment of leadership, various demonstrations of patriotism and grief as well as the textual and visual presentation of the attacks are analyzed in detail. These intermedial representations reaffirm or contest U.S. American grand narratives. While the German newspapers tend to focus on information and analysis, the U.S. papers tend to strengthen shattered U.S. American identity constructions. The study is based on nearly 2,000 newspaper articles and documents the wide scope of topics prevalent in the post-9/11 newspaper coverage.

Mit Nabokov in der Eisenbahn, mit Graham Greene auf der Flucht vor giftigen Spinnen und mit Chatwin auf Wanderschaft - Das »Tao des Reisens« ist die Quintessenz aus den Erlebnissen und Einsichten reisender Schriftsteller. Theroux untersucht den Inhalt von Reisegepäck, durchleuchtet das Gefühl des Fremdseins und probiert unangenehm exotische Gerichte. Dabei kommen in diesem philosophischen Handbuch auch imaginäre Reisen nicht zu kurz - denn letztlich lässt sich lesend genauso gut die Welt erkunden. Paul Therouxs Grundsätze des Reisens: 1. Verlass dein Zuhause 2. Reise alleine 3. Reise mit leichtem Gepäck 4. Nimm eine Landkarte mit 5. Reise auf dem Landweg 6. Geh zu Fuß über eine Grenze 7. Führe ein Reisetagebuch 8. Lies einen Roman, der nichts mit dem Ort zu tun hat, an dem du dich befindest 9. Wenn du schon ein Handy dabei hast, vermeide wenigstens, es zu benutzen 10. Finde einen Freund
