Informing the News (eBook, ePUB)

As the journalist Walter Lippmann noted nearly a century ago, democracy falters ´´if there is no steady supply of trustworthy and relevant news.´´ Today´s journalists are not providing it. Too often, reporters give equal weight to facts and biased opinion, stir up small controversies, and substitute infotainment for real news. Even when they get the facts rights, they often misjudge the context in which they belong. Information is the lifeblood of a healthy democracy. Public opinion and debate suffer when citizens are misinformed about current affairs, as is increasingly the case. Though the failures of today´s communication system cannot be blamed solely on the news media, they are part of the problem, and the best hope for something better. Patterson proposes ´´knowledge-based journalism´´ as a corrective. Unless journalists are more deeply informed about the subjects they cover, they will continue to misinterpret them and to be vulnerable to manipulation by their sources. In this book, derived from a multi-year initiative of the Carnegie Corporation and the Knight Foundation, Patterson calls for nothing less than a major overhaul of journalism practice and education. The book speaks not only to journalists but to all who are concerned about the integrity of the information on which America´s democracy depends.

Finding the News (eBook, ePUB)

Finding the News tells Peter Copeland´s fast-paced story of becoming a distinguished journalist. Starting in Chicago as a night police reporter, Copeland went on to work as a war correspondent in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa before covering national politics in Washington, DC, where he rose to be bureau chief of the E. W. Scripps Company. The lessons he learned about accuracy and fairness during his long career are especially relevant today, given widespread concerns about the performance of the media, potential bias, and the proliferation of so-called ´´fake news.´´ He offers an honest and revealing narrative, told with surprising humor, about how he learned the craft of news reporting. Copeland´s story begins in 1980, when a colleague hastily declared him a full-fledged reporter after barely four days of training. He went on to learn the business the old-fashioned way: by chasing the news in thirty countries and across five continents. As a young person entering journalism and reporting during some of recent history´s most fraught military situations- including Operation Desert Storm and the US invasions of Panama and Somalia-Copeland discovered the craft was his calling. Looking back on his career, Copeland asserts his most important lessons were not about reporting, writing, or the latest technologies, but about the core values that underlie quality journalism: accuracy, fairness, and speed. Replete with behind-the-scenes stories about learning the trade, Copeland´s inspiring account builds into a heartfelt defense of journalism ´´done the right way´´ and serves as a call to action for today´s reporters. The values he learned as a cub reporter are needed now more than ever, he argues, as the integrity and motives of even seasoned journalists are called into question by political partisans. Copeland admits that those critics are not entirely wrong but contends that exciting new technologies, combined with a return to old-school news values, could usher in a golden age of journalism.

*_Breaking News_: Thriller, Politdrama und Familiensaga - hart, rasant und berührend. Tom Hagen, gefeierter Star unter den Krisenberichterstattern, ist nicht zimperlich, wenn es um eine gute Story geht. Die Länder des Nahen Ostens sind sein Spezialgebiet, seine Reportagen Berichte aus der Hölle. Doch in Afghanistan verlässt ihn sein Glück. Eine nächtliche Geiselbefreiung endet im Desaster. Hagens Ruf ist ruiniert, verzweifelt kämpft er um sein Comeback. Drei Jahre später bietet sich die Gelegenheit in Tel Aviv, als ihm Daten des israelischen Inlandgeheimdienstes zugespielt werden. Hagen ergreift die Chance - und setzt ungewollt eine tödliche Kettenreaktion in Gang... Breaking News ist ein mitreißender Thriller vor dem Hintergrund einer epischen Saga.

Making Nonprofit News (eBook, PDF)
12,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Making Nonprofit News examines the essence of nonprofit journalism on multiple levels of analysis, explaining how individuals, routines, organizational makeup and outside institutions all affect news production at nonprofit news organizations. The book argues that the market model itself - not simply the journalism industry - impacts news workers, news content and outside influence on the organization. Essentially, nonprofit journalism organizations are influenced by forces consistently impacting the industry as well as those previously not involved in journalism. Drawing on three years of in-depth interviews with more than 30 journalists at nonprofits, site visits and more broad research on nonprofit journalism, this book is a sociological study of how nonprofit status affects journalistic work. The book further conceptualizes the forces impacting newswork and examines the social institutions now on the boundaries of journalism due to their connection to nonprofit journalism. Exploring how nonprofit news is disrupting the industry´s very idea of news, news values and news processes, this is a helpful text for academics and researchers with an interest in journalism, media industries, media sociology and not-for-profits.
