Президентство и СМИ: традиционные и новые медиа как акторы в американской большой политике
Purpose of the study lies in suggesting an understanding of the roles played by traditional and new media outlets in the contemporary American top-tier (federal level) politics through analyzing biasness, political inclusiveness and tolerance of selected media outlets to opposing points of view. This research provides an insight into the role of each type of media in political process during Donald Trump’s presidency and builds up a basis for theorization of how American media space will develop in the nearest future. Researchers have tackled various issues that pose a certain interest for academic community, including the role of media in general. However, nothing exact was said about the role of digital and traditional media as separate entities. This gap in knowledge is meant to be fulfilled by this research, which pinpoints the reasons for old media holding their positions in politics during the most controversial presidency America has ever seen.
