2007; 215 Pages (DIN A4); Language: ENG
How do journalists and spokespersons in Brussels manage and produce EU news? This publication presents a first factual accounting of structures and processes of the work at the news site in Brussels. Conducted as part of the EU-funded project Adequate Information Management in Europe (AIM), this study complements an earlier investigation on EU news management at editorial offices in European countries. The main goal of this part of the project is to better understand how a EU news topic is selected. The focus of this analysis is, principally, directed at the overall news management processes and its routines. The influence of European institutions on the selection and processing of information that turns into news is also of particular interest.
