Is journalism a craft or an act?

Is journalism a craft or an act? | Communication in  the digital era | Scoop.it
Students in the spring 2014 UC Berkeley class, "Mass Media and American Politics" were challenged to think about how journalism has evolved in a fast-moving online world. If so, we might worry that this democratizing function of the Internet is also degrading the skill, craft and many years of experience and training that go into producing a piece of good journalism. Lana RamadanSometimes great acts of journalism are the work of average citizens who use their cell phone to record a police beating or even a revolution. Though it is true anyone can post to the Internet, I believe that as online journalism increases there will be a push for more accountability and overall quality, as many are recognizing its potential and value. The rise in this class of journalists allows room for specialized reporting that is otherwise ignored by the media, such as ethnic media, religion, fine arts, health and animal welfare. [...] it couples well with the rise of civic journalism.
