Information Age Journalism by Vincent Campbell
Book DescriptionFor almost four hundred years, journalism has played a central role in the evolution and development of societies across the globe, but as we enter the 21st Century and the age of information, exactly what journalism is, what it does, and what it means has become increasingly problematic. Understanding journalism today requires awareness of concepts and practices around the world, rather than just in terms of Western notions of journalism's social role. Information Age Journalism examines fundamental questions about what journalism in the age of information means in an international context. The book aims to act as both an introduction for students and a critical examination of the dominant theories in journalism studies. The book includes: explanation and discussion of the contemporary "crisis" in Western journalism; examination of core concepts in journalism studies, like new values, objectivity and ethics, drawing on comparative examples from around the world; and, exploration of the impact of new media technologies on established theories and practices in journalism.
