About the Author

David Tewksbury is Associate Professor of Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Jason Rittenberg is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Communication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.


"News on the Internet is a most welcomed addition to the growing literature on the transformations of journalism and its publics in the digital world. Tewksbury and Rittenberg provide an important overview of the scholarship produced on this topic so far. This engaging book is poised to become a major resource for researchers and educators alike."--Pablo J. Boczkowski, author of Digitizing the News and News at Work "Tewskbury and Rittenberg have provided an exhaustive analysis of how the internet has re-shaped contemporary journalism. They address many of the major issues of the internet and news media today related to both the news organization and the media audience. These include facets such as fragmentation and specialization of the audience in a democracy, the disappearance of the traditional media/online media distinctions, and the economics of online journalism. The book is a must-read for academics and practitioners who need to understand where journalism is going in the internet age."---Richard Davis, author of The Web of Politics "This is an ideal text for making sense of the internet news environment. It tells a fascinating story about the new political world that emerges when citizens join the chorus of news professionals and demystifies a complex situation that people of all ages need to understand."--Doris Graber, author of Media Power in Politics "Through impeccable research, Tewksbury and Rittenberg confirm what many have assumed: in an age in which markets are scattered and the Internet serves niche audiences, fragmented, polarized, and democratized audiences choose the sites and news they ingest. ... Highly recommended." --CHOICE
