Example text

The study of social control of journalists by themselves and by third parties has been largely forgotten. With the present concentration of research on the effects of TV viewing, the study of media as social institutions has suffered considerably. This has left the field to the treatment of the media system by cultural criticism. An elitist perspective from which most of the newer developments that pleased the majorities were seen as deplorable, characterized ‘Kulturkritik’ in Germany. This included criticism of leisure that now became available to ordinary wage earners, and singled out for stern judgments the use of mass media.

However, it does have a continuing value, especially perhaps in the area of new media research referred to above. The social action approach, with its much stronger emphasis on media use as an outcome of subjective reflection on the life-world has since been more clearly specified and advanced theoretically in various writings by Renckstorf. The potential for application in empirical research is becoming clear (Renckstorf, McQuail & Jankowski, 1999). If one was sketching variant perspectives one would probably need to include the broad ‘culturalist/reception’ theory approach as a distinctive fourth alternative way into the territory of accounting for media use and satisfaction.
