Slow News

A Manifesto for the Critical News Consumer

Oregon State University Press
Slow News examines the nature of news and the increasingly frenetic pace of modern life in the twenty-first century. Laufer proposes that we take a cue from the slow food movement and step back from the constant barrage of news to consider the news and events and processes it addresses thoughtfully, thoroughly, and at a more considered pace.
An award-winning journalist, broadcaster, and documentarian, Peter Laufer is the James Wallace Chair in the School of Journalism and Communications at the University of Oregon.
