Author Biography

Daniel C. Hallin, University of California, San Diego

Daniel C. Hallin is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University of California, San Diego. His research concerns journalism, political communication, and the comparative analysis of media systems. He has written on the media and war; on television coverage of elections, demonstrating the shrinking „sound bite” and offering an interpretation of its meaning for political journalism, and on the rise and decline of journalist professionalism in the United States, and, more recently, health news and the mediatization of health and medicine. He has also focused his attention on the comparative analysis of media systems, focusing on Western Europe and on Latin America, and trying to bring into political communication and media studies the tradition of comparative historical and institutional analysis that can be found in sociology and comparative politics. His book “Comparing Media Systems: Three Models of Media and Politics”, co-authored with Paolo Mancini, has won the Outstanding Book awards of the International Communication and National Communication Associations, and the Goldsmith Book Award of the Shorenstein Center on Press and Politics at Harvard.
