Dr. Michael X. Delli Carpini Walter H. Annenberg Dean
Author of After Broadcast News: Media Regimes, Democracy, and the New Information Environment (Cambridge 2011), Dean Delli Carpini’s research focuses on the extent, sources and impact of public deliberation, as well as the causes and consequences of the blurring between news and entertainment.
"We are living in an age in which the role of news is in flux. The news media – the local newspaper and local news or national news is done for all intents and purposes. What is up for grabs right now is what will happen for journalism. It is unimaginable if we lived in a world without journalists, but that is completely distinct now from the industry of news. What is there about the new information environment that we can use to make a better information environment or democracy?”
