A Very Short Introduction

Journalism entered the twenty-first century caught in a paradox. The world had more journalism, across a wider range of media, than at any time since the birth of the western free press in the eighteenth century. Western journalists had found themselves under a cloud of suspicion: from politicians, philosophers, the general public, anti-globalization radicals, religious groups, and even from fellow journalists. Critics argued that the news industry had lost its moral bearings, focusing onhigh investment returns rather than reporting and analysing the political, economic, and social issues of the day. Journalism has a central and profound impact on our worldview; we find it everywhere from newspapers and television, to radio and the Internet. In the new edition of this thought-provoking and provocative Very Short Introduction, Ian Hargreaves examines the world of contemporary journalism. By looking not only at what journalism has been in the past, but also what it is becoming in the digital age, he examines the big issues relating to reportage, warfare, celebrity culture, privacy, and technology worldwide. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Journalism Online tackles the pressing question of how to apply fundamental journalism skills to the online medium. It provides an essential guide to the Internet as a research and publishing tool. In particular, it examines how to forge key journalism skills with the distinctive qualities of the World Wide Web to provide compelling web content. Trainee and practicing online journalists will learn: - core journalism skills of identifying, collecting, selecting and presenting news and information; - multimedia skills such as audio recording and editing; - online research methods including use of search tools, newsgroups and listservs; - story construction and writing for the Web; - an introduction to HTML; - web site design for the effective use of content. Journalism Online takes the best of the 'new' and 'old' media to provide an essential primer for this emerging discipline. Leading web designers such as Jakob Nielsen rub shoulders with established journalists like Harold Evans in the search for clear guidance in this rapidly developing field. It also provides a useful insight for non-news organisations into how to prepare and present effective web content and avoid the deepest pitfall of the online world - being ignored. Supplementary resources can be found on the book's supporting web site www.journalismonline.co.uk, which features additional exercises, useful links and reviews.

Its aim is to assess the contribution of citizen journalism to crisis reporting, and to encourage new forms of dialogue and debate about how it may be improved in future.

The authors argue that compared to male colleagues, women journalists are often considered open to criticism on their sex lives, parental status and appearance from audiences and management alike. The book is unique in examining women's contribution to both mainstream and alternative news media. It examines the strategies women have adopted to gain power in a male-dominated media environment, charting women's independent press, radio, television and Internet initiatives in the United States and Britain: from the suffrage press to Spare Rib in the UK, from the abolitionist campaigners to Off Our Backs and Ms Magazine in the US; and from women's community radio, television news programs to women's Internet newsgroups in both countries

Boundaries of Journalism

Professionalism, Practices and Participation

The concept of boundaries has become a central theme in the study of journalism. In recent years, the decline of legacy news organizations and the rise of new interactive media tools have thrust such questions as "what is journalism" and "who is a journalist" into the limelight. Struggles over journalism are often struggles over boundaries. These symbolic contests for control over definition also mark a material struggle over resources. In short: boundaries have consequences. Yet there is a lack of conceptual cohesiveness in what scholars mean by the term "boundaries" or in how we should think about specific boundaries of journalism. This book addresses boundaries head-on by bringing together a global array of authors asking similar questions about boundaries and journalism from a diverse range of perspectives, methodologies, and theoretical backgrounds. Boundaries of Journalism assembles the most current research on this topic in one place, thus providing a touchstone for future research within communication, media and journalism studies on journalism and its boundaries.

This volume sets out the state-of-the-art in the discipline of journalism at a time in which the practice and profession of journalism is in serious flux. While journalism is still anchored to its history, change is infecting the field. The profession, and the scholars who study it, are reconceptualizing what journalism is in a time when journalists no longer monopolize the means for spreading the news. Here, journalism is explored as a social practice, as an institution, and as memory. The roles, epistemologies, and ethics of the field are evolving. With this in mind, the volume revisits classic theories of journalism, such as gatekeeping and agenda-setting, but also opens up new avenues of theorizing by broadening the scope of inquiry into an expanded journalism ecology, which now includes citizen journalism, documentaries, and lifestyle journalism, and by tapping the insights of other disciplines, such as geography, economics, and psychology. The volume is a go-to map of the field for students and scholars—highlighting emerging issues, enduring themes, revitalized theories, and fresh conceptualizations of journalism.

Citizen Journalism Footage im Dokumentarfilm. Demokratiefördernde Potenziale dokumentarfilmischer Hybride

Öffentlichkeit im Idealfall ist zu begreifen als diskursiver Raum, in dem gesellschaftlicher Konsens und Dissens auf der Grundlage geteilter Informationen generiert und diskutiert werden. Voraussetzung ist, dass ihre Mitglieder auch über die Informationen verfügen, die sie benötigen, um sich auf rationale Weise eine eigene Meinung zu allen gesellschaftlich relevanten Fragen bilden zu können. Der zunehmende Wegfall von Produktions- und Distributionsbarrieren, der mit der Etablierung ‚neuer‘ Medientechnologien einhergeht, hat eine erhebliche Zunahme der Öffentlichmachung partikularer Interessen zur Folge – eine Tatsache, die sich auch in Menge und Komplexität der angebotenen Informationen manifestiert. Der Bedarf an professionellen Instanzen, die in der Lage sind, diese Informationen vorzuselektieren, zu validieren und zu etwas zu verarbeiten, mit dem die öffentliche Meinung umgehen kann, steigt somit stetig. Auch dokumentarischer Film wird zunehmend zu Informations- und Aufklärungszwecken genutzt. Handicams und Camcorder ermöglichen es, schnell und ohne umfassende Vorkenntnisse Bewegtbildmaterial zu produzieren, das Internet dieses öffentlich zu machen, zu verbreiten und zu rezipieren. Viele Bürgerjournalisten nutzen die Möglichkeit derartiger Informationsherstellung und -verbreitung in dem Glauben, über das Erreichen einer Öffentlichkeit Veränderung bewirken zu können. Doch ohne eine professionelle Instanz, die das Material aufgreift und aufarbeitet, geht dieses citizen journalism footage – und somit eine der bedeutsamsten Informationsquellen unserer Zeit – nur allzu oft in der Komplexität des Cyberspace verloren. Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es daher zu untersuchen, inwiefern der klassische Dokumentarfilm als professionelle und etablierte Medieninstanz eine Aufarbeitung von citizen journalism footage im Sinne obiger Problemstellung gewährleisten kann und – vor dem Hintergrund einer von demokratischen Werten geleitete Funktionserwartung an die Medien – sollte.

Most great transformations are not apparent as we live through them. Only in hindsight do individual moments acquire layers of meaning that give them great significance. Looking back is not something that comes naturally to journalists, immersed as they are in breaking events and relentless deadlines. But there is still good reason for journalists, scholars, and people who care about journalism to think about the critical episodes in its recent evolution. In "Defining Moments in Journalism, "such authors vividly describe episodes of this kind. Some of the chapters and contributors include: "The Lessons of Little Rock" by Harry S. Ashmore; "Vietnam and War Reporting" by Peter Arnett; "Photo-journalists--Visionaries Who Have Changed Our Vision" by Jane M. Rosett; "The Weight of Watergate" by Ellen Hume; "Women Sportswriters--Business as Usual" by Mary Schmitt; "The Connie Chung Phenomenon" by Somini Sengupta; and "Covering Politics--Is There a Female Difference?" by Judy Woodruff. The years since the Great Depression and World War II have seen vast changes in America and also in its journalism. Journalists' relationship to power and authority is more complex; the press corps has become more diverse; the technology of news reporting is almost unrecognizably different from that of fifty years ago; and economic reorganization of the media has bundled news and entertainment organizations into conglomerates of extraordinary size. "Defining Moments in Journalism "is a fascinating read for communications scholars and professionals, historians, and political scientists.
