International News and the New Information Order.
Varis, Tapio; And Others
The international research project, "Transnational Communication," has concentrated mainly on the role and impact of transnational corporations in international communications, and the effects of creating a new international information order; this report presents papers summarizing three particular aspects of the world information order that were produced as by-products of the research project. The first paper describes the international broadcast system in Europe and its relation to the developing countries and their broadcast news sources. An analysis of Associated Press coverage of the first Intergovernmental Conference in Communication Policies held in Costa Rica in 1976 is covered in the second paper. The third paper, which deals with the Inter Press Service (IPS) as a source for alternative news, is a description of a particular type of news agency which is mainly operating in the third world countries. Appended tables present the newspapers which have published IPS materials and how much material they published in 1976, the subject areas IPS reports and analyses have dealt with, and the subject countries of IPS reporting published by various newspapers.
