Almost everyone reads the newspaper, browses the Internet, listens to the radio, or watches TV. Journalism has an indelible effect on our worldview - from the fight against global terrorism to the American presidential elections, celebrity scandal to the latest environmental coups. Hargreaves uses his unique position within the media to examine how we get this information and the many practical, political and professional decisions that the journalist has to make, as part of the processof delivering that information to us. Is journalism the 'first draft of history' or a dumbing-down of our culture and a glorification of the trivial and intrusive? In this intriguing book Ian Hargreaves argues that the core principles of 'freedom of the press' and the necessity of exposing the truth are as vital today as they ever were.

Radio journalists have witnessed much of the history of the twentieth century. From early documentary recordings , to the ground-breaking war reporting of Ed Murrow and Richard Dimbleby, to the sophisticated commentaries of Alistair Cooke and reporters such as Fergal Keane, International Radio Journalism explores the way radio has covered the most important stories this century and the way in which it continues to document events in Britan, America, Europe and many other countries around the world. International Radio Journalism is both a theoretical textbook and a practical guide for students of radio journalism, reporters, editors and producers. The book details training and professional standards in writing, presentation, technology, editorial ethics and media law in America, Britain, Australia and other English speaking countries and examines the major public sector broadcast networks such as the BBC, CBC, NPR and ABC as well as the work of commercial and small public radio stations. Timothy Crook investigates the way in which news reporting has been influenced by governments and media conglomerates and identifies an undercurrent of racial and sexual discrimination throughout the history of radio news. There are chapters on media law for broadcast journalists, the implications of multi-media and new technologies, digital applications in radio news, and glossaries which cover the skills of voice presentaion, writing radio news and broadcast vocabulary.

This insightful, eloquent and entertaining anthology paints a compelling portrait of Canada and Canadian journalism in a rapidly changing world. It brings together thirty years of the prestigious James M. Minifie Lecture, at the University of Regina's School of Journalism. Touching on a wide range of topics from war to climate change to our ongoing constitutional crisis, these lectures have been delivered by some of Canada's leading journalists. They stand as a tribute to press freedom and the journalistic imagination in Canada. Required reading for journalists and everyone concerned about the state of the democratic process journalism informs and animates---or should ---this is a timely intervention. With media industries in crisis and the democratic craft of journalism in peril, this is also the chronicle of the reinvention of Canada, and of Canadian journalism, over the last three decades. It is an intriguing glimpse into the inner life of the press corps and an essential guide to some of the issues that must be addressed by journalists and media reform movements alike in the years ahead. is the signature for the end of a story in traditional news practice. It is believed the practice of closing with "-30-" had its roots in the age of the telegraph. In the age of typewritten copy, it indicated the last page of news copy. We designate it here as the title for our collection to acknowledge the importance of tradition, particularly the democratic tradition so deeply rooted in the profession's history. We use it also to recognize thirty years of the Minifie Lectures, the views of thirty leading journalists and a central paradox of journalism: that there is no such thing as the `final word' but that every end, every piece of filed copy provides our public dialogue with a new beginning. This insightful and entertaining anthology paints a compelling portrait of Canada and Canadian journalism in a rapidly changing world. It brings together thirty years of the prestigious James M. Minifie Lecture at the University of Regina's School of Journalism. Minifie's career as a journalist began in 1929 when he joined the staff of the New York Herald Tribune becoming their Paris correspondent. He covered the Spanish Civil War and Mussolini's rise to power, and during wwn he reported on the Battle of Britain from London. Transferred to Washington, Minifie joined the Office of Strategic Services and at war's end was awarded the American Medal of Freedom for his contributions to the Allied cause. Then began Minifie's long association with the CBC as their Washington correspondent, first on radio, then on television. Throughout his career he also wrote several highly regarded books. James M. Minifie died in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1974.

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.

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.

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

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.
