This work gives an insight on the great divide caused by inequality in the access to news and media.
From the preface:
"SOMETIME AGO, A BUNCH OF SCHOLARS, some of us with some previous experience as media practitioners as well, decided to start working on a topic, a problem we were, and are, particularly concerned about, so we decided it was time to be concerned with it, too: income inequality and its relationship with news. First, we started an approach to the definition of the topic, and then we focused on how media dealt with such an important issue. Content analysis was the tool we chose to apply to that approach. Soon, we discovered that, on the one hand, inequality has many faces, so it was necessary to address the problem in a better way, considering the multiple inequalities -all of them related, ultimately, with the wealth of people- from a multiplicity of perspectives. On the other hand, we needed to focus more precisely on what to do. We obtained a project to help funding this research line. Although the research project (News, networks, and users in the hybrid media system. Transformation of media industries and the news in the post-industrial era (RTI2018-095775-B-C43) had a broader scope, and we were just part of a larger team, our particular, beloved research line could have a place in it, so from 2019 to the end of 2022 we have been working on the many aspects of the inequal access to news, and the treatment that media do on the topic".
