The decline in the number of US mainstream media outlets has led to a sharp growth among both niche and foreign media groups now represented in Washington, DC. The capital city has emerged as a transnational journalism space, and an increasing number of journalists from around the globe, carrying with them their distinct journalistic culture, compete for political sources in DC and gather news alongside US journalists. The Washington DC Media Corps in the 21st Century provides an empirical answer to the question of how globalization has affected the relationship between sources and reporters in DC, based on original data collected in the capital. Hellmueller explores how evolving journalistic practices in a transnational environment challenge our theoretical assumptions of journalism culture and proposes three elements to provide a theoretical framework for future studies on transnational journalism cultures.
