Could you please write a balanced 5000 words long masters level essay on the question: “What is the relationship (if any) between pluralism, networked communication, participation and politics? Discuss your answer with reference to relevant debates on the public/counter public sphere(s).”
When talking about the public sphere please reference Habermas himself from here: https://www.jstor.org/stable/487737?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents
Otherwise please use the sources attached as a starting point for the required research. For the source “Media studies’ fascination with the concept of the public sphere: critical reflections and emerging debates” please do not quote that study itself but rather some of the works it refers to e.g.:

From these please do mention Mouffe and her work on Deliberative Democracy.
Please assign the work to a writer who is a native/bilingual British English writer. In my last order the syntax was somewhat garbled and the vocabulary fairly limited. I do not expect any groundbreaking research, but please keep the syntax and vocabulary appropriate to MA level writing.
Thank you & have a nice day!
