'The volume's snapshot of a turbulent time provides valuable insights.'
'The authors have generated a valuable amount of new data and pose important questions about local media and democracy.'
‘Drawing on a nuanced conception of what cities are and why they matter, The Mediated City takes seriously the idea that urban communication have shifted drastically in the digital age, but goes far beyond the usual polarized lamentations or celebrations of internet-era journalism. This is an important book.’
Chris Anderson, author of Rebuilding the News: Metropolitan Journalism in the Digital Age
‘Anyone who wants to understand how news can help inform citizens, sustain communities and enable democratic politics should read this book. It develops an original and powerful ecological approach to deliver a rich and nuanced analysis that will interest citizens, journalists and scholars alike.’
Rasmus Kleis Nielsen, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford
'Probably the best study of

economically concerned and policy aware – this is a must-read for all
