Will the new digital generation break down barriers for journalism, or will things just stay the same?
These and other pertinent questions will be asked and explored throughout this exciting new book that looks at the changing dynamics of journalism in a digital era. Examining issues and debates through cultural, social, political and economic frameworks, the book gets to grip with today's new journalism by understanding its historical threats and remembering its continuing resilience and ability to change with the times. In considering new forms of journalistic practice the book covers important topics such as:
• truth in the new journalism
• the changing identity of the journalist
• the economic implications for the industry
• the impact on the relationship between the journalist and their audience
• the legal framework of doing journalism online.
Vibrant in style and accessible to all, Digital Journalism is a captivating read for anyone looking to understand the advent of a new journalism that has been altered by the latest digital technologies.
An essential introduction to the changed landscape of journalism with a very strong theoretical framework from the authors. Illuminating and thought-provoking,
This title is recommended reading, among similar ones and journal articles, for my Year 1 Social Media students.
Very useful primer
this book will be used by my students as it it applies to all forms of journalism as well as radio production.
Great introduction to the principles of digital journalism. The early chapters in particular will prove useful to the students, as it demonstrates how other mediums have impacted upon journalism in the past.
A key text in the study of how online technologies are being applied by journalists and are affecting journalism today.
An intelligent and comprehensive examination of the financial and political drivers underlying the digital age.
Jones and Salter provide a detailed and fascinating insight into the advent of online journalism; its impact in society and on the news industry whilst explaining how and why it has been both embraced and, at times, resisted by news organisations.
Whilst, the language and terms of reference, at times, maybe regarded as a little overly complex for the student reader, this is an excellent text to support all inquiry into new media.
An enjoyable and informative analysis of journalism in the modern age
This book is very useful for anyone looking to have better understanding of a new journalism. However, it would be better if both authors consider to have extra chapters on digital journalism practices in Asia (maybe) for their next edition.
