The 5th episode of the podcast “More than a Feeling - Emotions and Society” examines the question of how neutral the observations are that the daily news presents to us every evening at 8:15 pm. What role play feelings for every form of journalism.
For the current edition of our podcast, one of the moderators changes roles: Today the communication scientist Margreth Lünenborg and her colleague Ana Makhashvili are guests of the social and cultural anthropologist Birgitt Röttger-Rössler. They talk about the research project "Journalism and the order of emotions" and discuss, besides the question of the supposedly sober news, who decides which information is relevant and which not, and how actors in social networks challenge journalistic authority.
The episode is available in German.
We welcome questions, comments, and criticism by mail to email@example.com.
