Chapter 5 begins the analysis of remediation. It first further substantiates the argument of a congenial relationship between mainstream media and talk radio by drawing upon two representative surveys of professional journalists. It then presents a textual analysis of how newspapers reported the voices of the citizen-callers from talk radio as “public opinion.” It illustrates the textual strategies employed to construct the callers as reasoning and engaged citizens and their views as substantive, representative, and potentially influential.
