Challenge and change
Journalists were once defined by where they worked; in newspapers, or radio and television stations. Now, the internet promises everyone, everywhere can be a publisher. But not everyone has the skills or training to be a journalist; defined by their professional practices and codes of ethics. Such journalists will continue to authorise information, providing signposts for discerning audiences. Journalism is merely evolving, as it has done many times before to exploit newer media. This book examines the challenges facing the profession as it transforms to face its future.
