This chapter addresses the distinction between old and new media by exploring how new media technologies enter into the settings of supposedly ‘old’ media organisations. In focusing on how Toronto Star editors negotiated new forms of visual display and online technology, it highlights the tenuous practices and material settings that make up sites of public action, and in turn questions sweeping claims about the political potential of, or otherwise the threats posed by, new media.

Keywords:   media technologies, media organisations, Toronto Star, online technology, public action
