News with a View

News with a View

Author: Burton III St. John Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/04/2021

Modern mainstream journalism faces a very real disturbance of its foundational premise that credible news is gathered and articulated from an objective stance. This volume offers new examinations of how the traditional notion of objectivity is changing as professional journalists grapple with a rapidly evolving news terrain--one that has become increasingly crowded by those with no journalistic credentials. Examining historical antecedents, current dilemmas with objectivity, international aspects, and theoretical considerations, contributors makes the unique case that the journalist's impulse to hold onto objectivity, and to ignore the increasing amount of subjectivities to which citizens are attuned, actually contributes to the news media's disconnect from today's news consumer. By revealing how traditional journalism needs to incorporate post-objective stances, these essays stimulate further thought and conversation about news with a view in both theory and practice.

Covering America

Covering America

Author: Christopher Daly Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/04/2021

Today many believe that American journalism is in crisis, with traditional sources of news under siege from a failing business model, a resurgence of partisanship, and a growing expectation that all information ought to be free. In Covering America, Christopher B. Daly places the current crisis within a much broader historical context, showing how it is only the latest in a series of transitions that have required journalists to devise new ways of plying their trade. Drawing on original research and synthesising the latest scholarship, Daly traces the evolution of journalism in America from the early 1700s to the digital revolution of today. Analysing the news business as a business, he identifies five major periods of journalism history, each marked by a different response to the recurrent conflicts that arise when a vital cultural institution is housed in a major private industry. Throughout his narrative history Daly captures the ethos of journalism with engaging anecdotes, biographical portraits of key figures, and illuminating accounts of the coverage of major news events as well as the mundane realities of day-to-day reporting.
