Ethics in the News - 2017 report

Ethics in the News - 2017 report | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
After a year of unprecedented news-making, media around the world are stepping back to ask a pertinent question – what is the future of ethical journalism in an age when it appears that the public around the world are falling out with facts, humanity and accountable truth-telling?

Ethics in the News by the Ethical Journalism Network, which launches on Tuesday 10 January, throws some light on ethical challenges for media and gives journalists some key tips on ethical survival techniques.

In Europe and America the report looks at how media covered the UK vote to leave the European Union and the Trump election which intensified concerns about the revival of racism, extremism and political propaganda across the western world.

Ethics in the News analyses fake news and how journalism with a public purpose can be overwhelmed in a do-it-yourself world of communications that has led to a so-called post-truth movement in which facts and expert opinion are left on the sidelines of public discourse.

But this is no “western media” crisis. Elsewhere, the question is equally relevant.
Manuel Pinto's insight:
The document examines the main news ethical issues in the different parts of the world.

This is why I am so concerned about the rise of fake news. We’ll come to definitions in a minute. For the moment, let me say this: Fake news damages public trust in news media. Fake news undermines public confidence in our democratic discourse. Fake news exacerbates economic pressures facing quality news organisations. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, fake news highlights issues of responsibility and regulation in our fast-evolving media ecosystem.

Despite growing polarisation, Americans still prefer balanced reporting

Despite growing polarisation, Americans still prefer balanced reporting | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Much has been made about the deepening political divide in American public life. Contentious issues like climate change, health care reform and immigration often present a country where existing beliefs and opinions are entrenched and little room seems to exists for opposing viewpoints or counter arguments. To explain this phenomenon, some observers and media pundits point to so-called selective exposure, in which individuals favour information that reinforces their pre-existing views (pro-attitudinal arguments) while avoiding contradictory information (counter-attitudinal arguments). This tendency for selective-exposure is thought to be facilitated and amplified by news outlets across the ideological spectrum.

Adding a “disputed” label to fake news seems to work, a little. But for some groups, it actually backfires

Adding a “disputed” label to fake news seems to work, a little. But for some groups, it actually backfires | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

Does labeling fake articles shared on social media as fake actually convince people who might otherwise read and share them to think twice? It’s a fundamental question that Facebook itself isn’t doing too much to help answer by declining to share more comprehensive data around the impact of the fact-checking initiatives it’s running with organizations like the AP and Snopes.

The “disputed by third party fact-checkers” label on fake news articles circulated on Facebook has only a very modest impact on people’s perceptions, according to a working paper shared Tuesday by two researchers at Yale University

Are nonprofit news sites just creating more content for elites who already read a lot of news?

Are nonprofit news sites just creating more content for elites who already read a lot of news? | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
When NYU professor Rodney Benson began a study of the different types of media ownership, he was struck at first by the unique American-ness of nonprofit news. As he began interviewing people who worked at nonprofit news outlets, though, he discovered something else that seemed strange.

“I was struck by how market-oriented they were,” he said, recalling a visit to The Christian Science Monitor. “They didn’t have the pressure of maximizing profits, they didn’t have the same pressures you have at a commercial news organization, and yet they didn’t seem all that different from the commercial media.”

The Impact of Trust in the News Media on Online News Consumption and Participation

"Trust has long been considered an important factor that influences people’s relationship with news. However, the increase in the volume of information available online, together with the emergence of new tools and services that act as intermediaries and enable interactivity around the news, may have changed this relationship. Using Reuters Institute Digital News Report survey data (N = 21,524), this study explores the impact of individual trust in the news media on source preferences and online news participation behaviour, in particular sharing and commenting, across 11 countries. The results show that those with low levels of trust tend to prefer non-mainstream news sources like social media, blogs, and digital-born providers, and are more likely to engage in various forms of online news participation. These associations tend to be strongest in northern European countries, but are weaker elsewhere. Seeking alternative views and attempting to validate the credibility of news may be among the motivations behind these associations."

How did Israeli journalists’ Twitter messages about the 2014 Gaza war differ from their international colleagues’ messages, asked Ori Tenenboim, of University of Texas at Austin. Tenenboim analysed a random sample of 1 000 tweets, sent by 20 Israeli and 20 international journalists.

The contents of the messages differed significantly: Israeli journalists mentioned places in Israel more often, and international reporters places in Gaza. International journalists emphasized attacks in Gaza more, and Israeli journalists put weight on rocket attacks into Israel.

"IT’S THE TIME OF YEAR when university campuses around the country start to shake off the summer slow-mo. As the first day of classes approaches, I’ve been thinking about what I plan on saying to my journalism students about this extraordinary period in our country’s life, and how that impacts their future as journalists. (...) I want to put into perspective what they are facing as they go out to report stories, and why this is such a critical time for budding journalists to think deeply and carefully about what they do and how they do it. 

 But I will start by telling them what they won’t learn in my class."

"This study investigates news consumption on mobile devices with the goal of identifying where mobile devices fit into people’s media repertoires and how consumption patterns on them are different from those on other platforms. Results suggest that mobile devices are almost always used along with other platforms for getting news, that news sessions on smartphones are shorter than on other platforms, and mobile news consumption happens more times per day and is spread throughout the day. Implications for the study of news consumption, news producers, and consumers are discussed."

Conversation avec Katharine Viner : les médias à l’ère de la post-vérité

Conversation avec Katharine Viner : les médias à l’ère de la post-vérité | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Comment informer et rétablir la vérité des faits quand plus personne ne vous entend et que de fausses informations circulent massivement sur les réseaux sociaux ? En juillet 2016, quelques semaines après le référendum sur le Brexit, Katharine Viner, rédactrice en chef du quotidien londonien The Guardian, s’interrogeait sur le métier de journaliste dans une analyse remarquée.

Alors que les algorithmes présentent « une vision du monde qui renforce les croyances que nous avions déjà », le rôle des médias a changé selon la journaliste. Il est avant tout d’« expliquer, vérifier, préciser, démentir les rumeurs » mais aussi d’« éduquer aux médias, à l’information, pour mieux armer les citoyens contre la manipulation d’où qu’elle provienne. »

Os silêncios do jornalismo - atas de colóquio

"A – Quais silêncios? Quais são os silêncios do jornalismo? Do que estamos falando quando abordamos esse assunto? Quais são as transgressões do jornalismo das quais não se fala, não se reconhece e que, contudo, são conhecidas? Como os não ditos variam de um país a outro, de uma época a outra? B – Quem produz os silêncios? Como eles são construídos? Como são produzidos pelos grupos profissionais e que tipo de cultura eles estabelecem? Eles são resultado das autoridades que regulam a autonomia do jornalismo? São enunciados pela instituição que organiza e orienta o trabalho dos jornalistas? !!! C – Como detectar os silêncios? Os discursos institucionais (profissão, lei, moral profissional e as prescrições das empresas jornalísticas) apresentam algum tipo de vestígio dessas omissões? Como encontrar os traços desses tabus? Como questionar ou observar os jornalistas a respeito desses não ditos? D – Como é vivenciado o silêncio? Como se interiorizam os silêncios? Como eles são apreendidos? As figuras tutelares do jornalismo participam desse processo? Ou as prescrições são enunciadas e transmitidas? Como avaliar que uma prática ou atitude seja considerada um tabu? Como o jornalista vive essa situação? O que explica o fato dele não falar sobre isso? Como ele vivencia isso de acordo com os contextos nacionais, com as épocas e locais? E – Qual o efeito de transgredir um silêncio? Como se apresenta a transgressão de um silêncio? É uma iniciativa individual? É um processo coletivo? O que acontece com aqueles que transgridem um silêncio? O que a comunidade profissional faz com eles? Em que nível é exercido o seu controle: profissão, autoridades, indivíduos? F – Como os silêncios se relacionam às transformações e permanências do jornalismo? É possível compreender as mudanças e continuidades do jornalismo por meio do estudo dos seus silêncios? De que forma eles são reveladores dessas dinâmicas? Como os processos de emergência, de transformação, de desaparecimento dessas omissões permitiriam revelar as transformações da prática jornalística e do mundo midiático?"
