Chapter 6 continues the analysis of content adaptation, but with an emphasis on selective appropriation and therefore the differences between newspapers with varying marketing and political positions. It presents a content analysis of how frequently different types of talk radio materials were used by different newspapers. Then, drawing upon the analysis of reported speech and constructed dialogue by applied linguists, the chapter discusses how news articles construct society-wide dialogues through organizing the discourses from talk radio with discourses from other speech contexts. It shows how the political stances of the newspapers are embedded in such constructed dialogues.
