Global Media Journal Spring 2013-Book Review-Burkart
==================================
Craving more Fear Factor, Carrie Underwood, Clay Aiken, or Pudsey the puppy dog? Good, because as exemplars of “new paradigms in the 21st century #global_mediascape,” they are quite likely to persist as popular #communication in lucrative, #global_media_markets.

Snowden fled the U.S. for Hong Kong, where he stayed for a couple weeks before flying to Russia. After a one-month ordeal in which he remained in legal limbo, Snowden was granted temporary asylum by the Russian government.
