Summary note
"Journalism is in transition. Irrevocable decisions are being made, often based on flimsy evidence, which could change not only the future of journalism, but also the future of democracy. This book, based on extensive research, provides the opportunity to reflect upon these decisions and considers how journalism could change for the better and for the good of democracy. It covers: the business landscape, work and employment, the regulatory framework, audiences and interaction, the impact of technology on practices and content, [and] ethics in a converged world. The book analyses research in both national and local journalism, broadsheet and tabloid papers, and broadcast, newspaper and online journalism, drawing comparisons between these different outlets in the field of news journalism, thus making this essential reading for scholars and students of journalism and media studies."--p. [4] of cover.
