Regulating timeliness : technologies, laws, and the news, 1840-1970 /

by Kielbowicz, Richard Burket, autore .
Publisher: 2015Description: P. [5]-83. In: Journalism & communication monographs. Columbia SC : Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, 1999- Vol. 17, no. 1 (Spring 2015)Abstract: The adventure of telegraphy in the United States shifted newsgathering from the public postal system to a private network dominated by telegraph companies and wire services, a nearly simultaneous revolution in journalism's technology and political economy. Postal newsgathering had been open to all newspapers with few costs and constrains, while its telegraphic successor developed amid a web of regulations. A changing configuration of occupational rules, private business arrangements, and public laws regulated each stage in the production of thelegraphic news, from source-reporter interactions to post-publication liability. This monograph analyzes the origins of rules that governed timely news - determining who got it, how fast, and on what term - from the advent of telecommunication on the eclipse of telegraphic news relays.
