Formatted abstract
Muhlmann’s analysis suggests that by focusing away from the underlying political economy of modern nation-states and instead on journalism itself as practised in those conditions—the reporting of news (1)—the commonalities which were evident from the end of the nineteenth century across ‘systems’ become far more apparent and re-constituent of a consensual democracy.

There is something essentially commonsensical of itself in the proposition of tension between a journalism which assembles a shared Us by confronting and resolving social discontinuities, and one which undermines our collective self by challenging our centredness in social consensus. The challenge for the thesis, however, is the demonstration of its wider historical applicability beyond a narrow range of activist journalists and politicized texts.
