Gatekeeping Фільтрування (ua)

general term for the role of initial selection and later editorial processing of event reports in news organizations. News media have to decide what ‘events’ to admit through the ‘gates’ of the media on grounds of their ‘newsworthiness’ and other criteria. Key questions concern the criteria applied and the systematic bias that has been discerned in the exercise of the role.
