"In seeking to identify and critique a range of the most pressing challenges confronting journalism today, this book examines topics such as:

the role of the journalist in a democratic society, including where questions of truth and free speech are concerned;the changing priorities of newspaper, radio, television, magazine, photography, and online news organisations;the political, economic and technological pressures on news and editorial independence;the impact of digital convergence on the forms and practices of newsgathering and storytelling;the dynamics of professionalism, such as the negotiation of impartiality and objectivity in news reports;journalists’ relationships with their sources, not least where the ‘spin’ of public relations shapes what’s covered, how and why;evolving genres of news reporting, including politics, business, sports, celebrity, documentary, war and peace journalism;journalism’s influence on its audiences, from moral panics to the trauma of representing violence and tragedy;the globalisation of news, including the role of international news agencies;new approaches to investigative reporting in a digital era;and the rise of citizen journalism, live-blogging and social media, amongst many others."
