The author, a leading expert in the field of European Journalism and Public Relations, compiles heuristic analyses concerning the interaction and role of journalism across various European Union member states. Media coverage of the EU in general, as well as individual EU institutions comes under scrutiny. The author discusses appropriate methods of analysing the functions, roles and contexts of journalism, and in his conclusion compares individual contexts with regards to synchronicity, and 'Degrees of Europeanisation'. As the title would suggest, the author is lead to the conclusion, that in recent times, there has been no great change in EU journalism across its members states, both in coverage and in attitude.
