New News for the New World Information Order.
Stevenson, Robert L.
Noting that recent emphasis in the New World Information Order debate has focused on the development of new structures for the production and exchange of news among Third World countries, this paper provides a qualitative and quantitative examination of three types of alternative news agencies. They include the second-tier Western agencies (DPA--Deutsche Presse Agentur--from West Germany, Kyodo from Japan); Third World national agencies (Tanjug--Telegrafska Agencija Nova Jugoslavija--from Yugoslavia, Xinhua from China, News Agency of Nigeria, Shihata from Tanzania); and global services (the Non-Aligned News Agencies pool, Inter Press Service). The paper concludes by noting that quantitatively these are similar to the big four Western agencies that provide most of the world's news, but qualitatively are very different. Appended are six data tables giving the results of a quantitative analysis of the various alternative services for the last two weeks of October, 1982. (Author/HOD)
