Section: Theory of Journalism and Media
Authors analyze theoretical issues of typologization of modem news agencies which are caused by changes of their role in the media system; the specific nature of their common typological characteristics; factors which determine their attribution to a unique typological group; intratypical differentiation of news agencies. The authors reconsider criteria of typologization of news agencies and introduce a new criterion. The authors represent empirical evidence and the results of interviews with experts which prove authors ’ hypothesis on deconstruction of traditional typological patterns.
