Abstract

This chapter revisits seminal theoretical categorizations of news proposed three
decades earlier by US sociologist Gaye Tuchman. By exploring the definition of
”breaking news” in the contemporary online newsrooms of three Danish news
organisations, the author offers us a long overdue re-theorization of journalistic
practice in the online context and helpfully explores well-evidenced limitations
to online news production, such as the relationship between original reporting
and the use of ”shovelware.”
