What We Talk About When Talk About “Media Independence”

What We Talk About When Talk About “Media Independence” | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Media independence is a contested concept that carries different meanings in different contexts. As a normative ideal, independence can be discussed on many levels, and media organisations, journalists, researchers and regulators often invoke the term in contradictory ways. In contemporary European media policy, the conceptual contestation over the meaning of independence has been further reheated by commercial media’s attempts to reframe the distinction between commercial and public service media as a choice between “independent” and “state” media. The digital transformations and the emergence of new media actors and platforms also challenge the meaning and relevance of different conceptions of media independence and dependence. In this article, we discuss the changing uses of the notion of independence in current media policy discourse, including controversies between public service and commercial media, but also other settings where the notion is invoked. We then develop a more fine-tuned understanding of the different dimensions that media independence contains in a contemporary media environment. Finally, we discuss how the relational nature of independence makes it problematic to employ as a normative principle in media policy.

Exploring News Literacy: Preparing future journalists— and citizens—for engagement in global digital culture.

Exploring News Literacy: Preparing future journalists— and citizens—for engagement in global digital culture. | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"In September of 2014 in Chicago, the Poynter Institute in partnership with the McCormick Foundation, brought together more than 100 participants for a News Literacy Summit, where researchers, educators, practitioners and funders gathered to set the course of practice, pedagogy and research in news literacy.  e summit highlighted some cutting edge work being done in classrooms, in com-munitiesi and in universities. Central to these conversations were best practices for teach-ing future journalists—and citizens—about critical engagement in the news landscape in contemporary digital culture. Scholars at this gathering presented fi ndings from research exploring where news literacy exists, how it’s taught and evaluated, and how new technolo-gies are impacting the ecosystem for news."

Media purge after abortive coup? | Reporters without borders | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) warns the Turkish authorities against any temptation to silence critical media outlets on the pretext of punishing supposed supporters of the 16 July coup attempt. More than a dozen news websites suspected of “endangering national security or public order” have been blocked by the High Council for Telecommunications (TIB) in the past 48 hours at the request of the prime minister’s office.

Six ways to make media coverage of immigration more constructive | The University of Kansas

Six ways to make media coverage of immigration more constructive | The University of Kansas | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
"U.S. immigration policy has become a hotly debated issue in the presidential primaries, and it figures to continue in the campaign as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump appear headed to receiving their parties' nominations later this summer. A University of Kansas researcher who studies issues surrounding human migration, particularly out of Latin America, says how the media has covered immigration issues in the campaign illustrates the wide chasm between the media and academic representations of this complex topic. "Both the mainstream and right-leaning media simplify migration, particularly undocumented, and talk past each other," said Brent Metz, associate professor of anthropology."

O ensino de jornalismo como um encontro e não como um discurso

O ensino de jornalismo como um encontro e não como um discurso | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
A formação do jornalista é uma discussão sempre presente no universo profissional e acadêmico, seja nos congressos, nas salas de aula ou nas redações. Dentre as principais questões, revelam-se a defesa da ética, da cidadania e do interesse público como características intrínsecas ao fazer jornalístico, assim como o alerta e a adaptação diante das constantes transformações tecnológicas e dos modelos de gerir e produzir conteúdos. Uma missão árdua para os professores dos cursos de comunicação, especialmente os de jornalismo, que, da mesma forma, necessitam estar preparados para desafios como as mudanças curriculares, os passaralhos, a ausência de investimento nas faculdades, o declínio dos impressos (entre eles, os jornais-laboratórios), entre outros fatores que interferem na profissão.

The Case Against the Media, by the Media

The Case Against the Media, by the Media | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
In the media market, like any market, that loyalty is earned, one presumes, by giving an audience what it wants. But what does it want? Is the media there to excite or to inform? To challenge or to reassure? To be objective or partisan? To try to parse the media-hate, as we have over the last few months, is to sense that the media still does at least one job very well: reflecting the contradictory desires of the audience it serves.

What Does Facebook Live Mean for Journalism?  | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it

"This piece was initially published on Storybench, a cookbook for digital storytelling. Storybench is a collaboration between Northeastern University’s Media Innovation program, a new graduate degree in digital journalism, and Esquire magazine.

Facebook Live officially launched in April, allowing users to broadcast live and tap the social media giant’s colossal audience. But it was last week that Facebook Live had its watershed, technology-transforming-history moment in the broadcast of Philando Castile’s lying injured and dying as filmed and narrated by his girlfriend after he was shot by a police officer."

Aliança estratégica entre o jornalismo e a academia

"Num mercado fragilizado pela associação do jornalismo às novas tecnologias, a possibilidade de estarmos perante uma ampla distorção dos valores deve ser co‑ locada. Sensacionalismo, interesse humano, infotainment, notícia que vende, co‑ municadores versáteis, jornalistas tecnológicos multicapacitados, polivalência im‑ posta para redução de custos, jornalistas de mochila às costas, jornalismo de corta e cola, distanciado do lugar da notícia, são apenas alguns dos conceitos, impostos pelo mercado, que se apoderaram do jornalismo e que espelham o grau de distorção.(...)"

Critique et autocritique du journalisme, signées Albert Camus, 1944

Critique et autocritique du journalisme, signées Albert Camus, 1944 | Journalism: the citizen side | Scoop.it
D’une part, le journaliste peut aider à la compréhension des nouvelles par un ensemble de remarques qui donnent leur portée exacte à des informations dont ni la source ni l’intention ne sont toujours évidentes. Il peut, par exemple, rapprocher dans sa mise en pages des dépêches qui se contredisent et les mettre en doute l’une par l’autre. Il peut éclairer le public sur la probabilité qu’il est convenable d’attacher à telle information, sachant qu’elle émane de telle agence ou de tel bureau à l’étranger. Pour donner un exemple précis, il est bien certain que, parmi la foule de bureaux entretenus à l’étranger, avant la guerre, par les agences, quatre ou cinq seulement présentaient les garanties de véracité qu’une presse décidée à jouer son rôle doit réclamer. Il revient au journaliste, mieux renseigné que le publie, de lui présenter, avec le maximum de réserves, des informations dont il connaît bien la précarité.

À cette critique directe, dans le texte et dans les sources, le journaliste pourrait ajouter des exposés aussi clairs et aussi précis que possible qui mettraient le public au fait de la technique d’information. Puisque le lecteur s’intéresse au docteur Petiot et à l’escroquerie aux bijoux, il n’y a pas de raisons immédiates pour que le fonctionnement d’une agence internationale de presse ne l’intéresse pas. L’avantage serait de mettre en garde son sens critique au lieu de s’adresser à son esprit de facilité. La question est seulement de savoir si cette information critique est techniquement possible. Ma conviction sur ce point est positive.
