    Default Marx's preliminary insights

    Hi,

    Could anyone help me with the underlined sentences:

    Marx's personal knowledge of journalism was shaped by the ten years he spent, while living in London, as a European correspondent for the New York Tribune. An impassioned advocate of a free press, who regarded it as a means to counter forces of oppression for the greater welfare of society, he nevertheless did not write at length about the news media. For political economists engaged with these issues today, then, Marx's preliminary insights need to be recast in relation to journalistic institutions the likes of which he could not have even anticipated in the nineteenth century.

    Thanks a lot.

    It is necessary to look at his ideas about journalism from a different perspective than you would have in the nineteenth century, because in that era they did not have radio, television or the Internet.
