The common “broadcast” structure is common to most of these news media outlets, it appears as a “hub and spoke” pattern. The people at the end of these spokes are the “audience”. Some of these news networks have many more “isolates” or “brand” mentioners – these are the grids of individuals with no connections to others. In contrast some contributors are densely connected in communities of discussion formed around various topics.
