A quote from Jim Hall’s 2001 book Online Journalism says that Interactivity “could be added to Impartiality, Objectivity and Truth as a core value of journalism.” (Hall, 2001) I think this has already happened, maybe it is not in official...   [tags: interactivity, blogging]

Investigative Reporting is the Driving Force in Journalism - ... The decade from the mid-sixties to the mid-seventies was the end of innocence for many journalists.

One of the key reasons why investigative journalism prospered during the 1960s was because of the way newspapers became more critical of established power. From 1960 onwards news coverage grew increasingly negative....   [tags: media, press, scandal] 2448 words
