Abstract

This article explores the mythic nature of television news in a global-newsroom context. News routine analysis of newscast producers and ethnographic data from a case study of the English-language newsroom at Germany's Deutsche Welle point to the existence of sociocultural filters influencing news decisions and, in turn, mythmaking. These filters reveal a uniquely German myth-the Past-not shared and even resisted by English-language (Anglo) producers framing stories and constructing newscasts from a German news organization for a global audience.
