Cause/antecedents/history (News Performance)


Humprecht, Edda (2021). Cause/antecedents/history (News Performance). Zürich: Hope.

Abstract

Analyses using the constructs cause/antecedents/history in news content are theoretically related to news performance and the democratic function of the media (McQuail, 1992). This construct is linked to professional standards and the normative assumption that the media should provide the audience with background information on current events and issues (Westerstahl, 1983). For example, news can be used to explain how a particular problem occurred, what happened beforehand and what the concrete reasons are for the current situation.
