Moving Beyond: Amended Dimensions, Salient Factors—An Emerging Model
- 201 Downloads
In this chapter, additional influencing factors pinpointed in the preceding chapter are further developed. Among those salient factors are the “small state” factor as well as conflict. The chapter culminates in the suggestion of the crisis-prone, small, Polarized Pluralist Model (CriSPP)—a variation on Hallin and Mancini’s Polarized Pluralist or Mediterranean Model. This model takes into consideration additional contextual differences and the need to consider other media sectors, factors and subdimensions that differentiate the Lebanese media system and similar systems.
