Beyond News: The Future of Journalism

Stephens, Mitchell,

9780231159388 - Beyond News: The Future of Journalism

Artikelomschrijving

For a century and a half, journalists made a good business out of selling the latest news or selling ads next to that news. Now that news pours out of the Internet and our mobile devices--fast, abundant, and mostly free--that era is ending. Our best journalists, Mitchell Stephens argues, instead must offer original, challenging perspectives--not just slightly more thorough accounts of widely reported events. His book proposes a new standard: wisdom journalism, an amalgam of the more rarified forms of reporting--exclusive, enterprising, investigative--and informed, insightful, interpretive, explanatory, even opinionated takes on current events. This book features an original, sometimes critical examination of contemporary journalism, both on- and offline, and it finds inspiration for a more ambitious and effective understanding of journalism in examples from twenty-first-century articles and blogs, as well as in a selection of outstanding twentieth-century journalism and Benjamin Franklins eighteenth-century writings. Most attempts to deal with journalisms current crisis emphasize technology.
