Description In most liberal democracies commercialized media is taken for granted, but in many authoritarian regimes the introduction of market forces in the media represents a radical break from the past with uncertain political and social implications.
In Media Commercialization and Authoritarian Rule in China, Daniela Stockmann argues that the consequences of media marketization depend on the institutional design of the state. In one-party regimes such as China, market-based media promote regime stability rather than destabilizing authoritarianism or bringing about democracy. By analyzing the Chinese media, Stockmann ties trends of market liberalism in China to other authoritarian regimes in the Middle East, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and the post-Soviet region.
Drawing on in-depth interviews with Chinese journalists and propaganda officials as well as more than newspaper articles, experiments and public opinion data sets, this book links censorship among journalists with patterns of media consumption and the media's effects on public opinion.

A typology for the study of entertainment television and politics. American Behavioral Scientist Infotainment can be divided into many subgenres. Lance Holbert, one of the prominent scholars in this field, creates a typology that classifies the different genres. He demonstrates how nine infotainment genres from entertainment talk shows to reality TV to satirical situation comedies can be classified on two axes: 1 providing explicit or implicit political messages and 2 whether audience members expect a program to be primarily political or whether politics serves only a secondary role.
Otto, L. Glogger, and M. The softening of journalistic political communication: A critical review of sensationalism, soft news, infotainment, and tabloidization.
Communication Theory Scholars often use concepts such as sensationalism, tabloidization, infotainment, or soft news interchangeably—all indicate that news coverage in one way or the other becomes more entertaining. Dealing with the lack of clarity between the concepts, the article provides a framework describing how these concepts can be observed on different levels of news production: within an item, the item itself, within genres, or even between different media types.

Although created for soft news specifically, this definition for the conceptualization of infotainment can easily be applied more generally to the topic of infotainment. Thussu, D.
