Episode Details

This lesson explores the behind-the-scenes strategies and major trends that made newspapers the centerpiece of mass culture in the nineteenth century and helped them secure a foothold in the increasingly complex mass media environment of the twentieth century. A strong emphasis is placed on the structure of the industry, including ownership trends, departmental functions, economic issues, and the ongoing challenges and opportunities that accompany new technologies.
