From the National Review to Breitbart, from Fox News to Rush Limbaugh, conservative news is an inescapable feature of modern politics. Since the early days of mass communication, right-wing media producers have blended reporting with commentary, narrating the news of the day from a perspective informed by conservative worldviews and partisanship. News on the Right seeks to initiate a new interdisciplinary field of scholarly research focused on the study of right-wing media and conservative news. Editors Anthony Nadler and A.J. Bauer gather a range of voices, presenting an interdisciplinary investigation into the practices and patterns of meaning-making in the production, circulation, and consumption of conservative news. Traversing journalism, media and communication studies, cultural studies, history, political science, and sociology, this volume utilizes a variety of qualitative and quantitative research methods to elucidate case studies of conservative news cultures in the US and UK. Together, these perspectives show that a fuller understanding of right-wing media and its effects can be reached by treating these phenomena as deeply interwoven into many conservatives' lives and political sensibilities.
How did we get from William F. Buckley to Sean Hannity? Or, for that matter, from a postwar conservative movement fueled by books, magazines, and radio to a contemporary political moment often propelled by the sheer rage of online media? This gripping volume offers a much needed interdisciplinary conversation about the past, present, and future of conservative and right-wing news media. It is a must-read for scholars of American news and politics. -Heather Hendershot, author of Open to Debate: How William F. Buckley Put Liberal America on the Firing Line
