We’ve been talking about civic and public journalism in my interpretive reporting class. Here are links to several articles/blog posts I’m having them read:
- New book examinesPublic Journalism 2.0
From the Civic & Citizen Journalism Interest Group
- Jay Rosen – The People Formerly Known as the Audience
The people formerly known as the audience are those who were on the receiving end of a media system that ran one way, in a broadcasting pattern, with high entry fees and a few firms competing to speak very loudly while the rest of the population listened in isolation from one another— and who today are not in a situation like that at all. Must read post from four years ago!
- Jay Rosen – Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right: On the Actual Ideology of the American Press
What is it that the press actually values. In which Prof. Rosen explains his terms The Church of the Savvy, The Quest for Innocence, Regression to a Phony Mean, The View from Nowhere, He Said, She Said Journalism, and The Sphere of Deviance. The biggies to pay attention to here are The Church of the Savvy and The View from Nowhere.
- And finally, a new post from Prof. Rosen today – The Journalists Formerly Known as the Media: My Advice to the Next Generation.
A post from Sunday that continues on his look at how online media is transforming the relationship between audiences and journalists.
