Drawing upon 158 interviews conducted between March 2016 and December 2017 in four cities in Argentina, and a survey of 700 adults administered in Buenos Aires and its suburbs in October 2016, the analysis shows that people enact a series of consumption routines that have devalued the news report in their everyday lives.
Pablo J. Boczkowski is professor in the School of Communication at Northwestern University.
