Title of lecture

Inside the heads of journalists. How do they construct the news.

Why do journalists pay attention only to some press releases? Why do they reflect some events and some not? Why do they react on certain campaigns and totally ignore the rest? In my lecture I will reveal some secrets how journalists reflect and reconstruct the reality. In a subsequent workshop we will be working on some case studies from a cultural sphere.
