Gate keeping and user generated content

Gate keeping refers to the filtration of the news, and the notion of journalists feeding readers with content geared towards them. It stems from the values of the news, and content which is culturally and topically relevant. If stories are geared towards what readers want then the readership will increase and in turn the money coming in. It can also be referred to as agenda setting, where the media contrives what news public sees, and it suggests what debates and discussion happen.
