New Journalism - Inverted pyramid. Unbiased news gathering. Objectivity in reporting. Professionalism. Routines that would regulate news reports, translating information to readers, regardless of geography. Journalism spent the better part of the 20th century routinizing the news, attempting to shed its seedy past of “yellow journalism” amid the challenges of new technologies, first the radio, followed by the television. Then came the tumultuous 1950s and 1960s. Suddenly, the same tides of changes that were sweeping America's cultural and political landscape were also reshaping journalism....   [tags: Journalism ]

Journalism backs the Entertainment and Advertising Moment - As part of pop culture’s largest entertainment and advertising movement, magazine journalism and publishing is a profession based on research, writing and reproof that I feel led to pursue because of the desires and talents that god has blessed me with. Journalism is the action of providing citizens with the information they need to stay independent, free, and self-governing. This main focus has remained constant throughout journalism’s long history. Although journalism has been stretched to a new level, as anyone with basic writing skills and technology may call themselves journalist, the definition remains the same that it is the sending out of new information to the people that they might...   [tags: advertisements, entertainment, journalism, ]

Hunter S. Tompson and Gonzo Journalism - Hunter S. Tompson and Gonzo Journalism In the late sixties a young journalist and free-lance novelist named Hunter S. Thompson (HST) emerged with a new, crazed and exaggerated brand of reporting. It was sooner or later referred to as “Gonzo”. HST’s own definition of gonzo has varied over the years, but he still maintains that a good gonzo journalist “needs the talent of a master journalist, the eye of an artist/photographer and the heavy balls of an actor” and that gonzo is a “style of reporting based on William Faulkner’s idea that the best fiction is far more true than any kind of journalism”(Carroll, page 192)....   [tags: Gonzo Journalism Argumentative Essays Press Media]

Examples include the Internet, social media networks, blogs, mobile phones and video games (Wikimedia Foundation Inc., 2013).

Edward R. Murrow and Changing the Face of Communication - Since the beginning of broadcast journalism, there has been one person credited with revolutionizing the field. This was Edward R. Murrow, also known as Mr. Television. Murrow set the highest standard for the reporting of news on radio and television.

His facts were solid, his scope thorough, his analysis on target, and his principles uncompromised (Edwards 7).

Journalism in War Stricken Locations - When war erupts, the world’s media converge on the scene of battle. The bigger the battle, the more consequential the fighting, and the more involved the major power then the more media will attend. “The very nature of war,” according to journalist Kate Adie (2002), “confuses the role of the journalist” (2002).

A Comparative Analysis of Armies of the Night and The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test in Regards to New Journalism - Taken at face value, Norman Mailer’s Armies of the Night and Tom Wolfe’s The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test may seem very similar. They are both centered on a major author of the 1960s and his experiencing of historical events of the time, while set in the style of New Journalism. When examined closer, though, it becomes apparent that these novels represent two very different sides of New Journalism – Armies of the Night an autobiography with personal and political motivations, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test a sociological piece which tries to capture the essence of its subjects rather than the absolute facts....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Fallacies in the Newspaper - The effective use of rhetoric can spur people into action for worthy causes, bring about positive health changes, and even persuade one to finish a college education. In contrast, like most things in life, what can be used for good can also be used in a negative way to elicit emotions such as outrage, fear, and panic. This type of rhetoric often uses fallacious statements in an appeal to emotion which complicates the matter even more as the emotions are misdirected. Unfortunately, the daily newspapers are filled with numerous examples of fallacious statements....   [tags: Journalism ]

Sources of Implicature in Videos Uploaded by Ahmad Hasan Alzoubi to Youtube - 1. Introduction The main function of a language is communication. We use words to express ourselves and words are our tools of conveying meanings. If a person was able to use words in a way that another person understands them, the message will reach and probably the goal of communication might be achieved.

Truman Capote’s Anonymity - In an interview with Truman Capote, George Plimpton asks if In Cold Blood is truly an accurate portrayal of the Clutter family’s murder, “One doesn’t spend almost six years on a book, the point of which is factual accuracy, and then give way to minor distortions” (Plimpton). Capote claims he only uses factual information in his story, completely removes himself from the novel, and has created a new genre of literature by combining reportage journalism with fiction techniques. However, literary critics have long debated whether or not In Cold Blood is the first of its kind: a non-fiction novel....   [tags: journalism, Cold Blood, Clutter family´s murder]

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. As many of them have recalled, reporting grew less deferential to politicians and more insistent and probing from the mid-1960s on. Journalists began to shed their almost passive demeanours and brought a real fire to the profession. 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

If journalism were to prioritize a subjective platform for news outlets it would be difficult for news consumers to read something new without being pressed opinions.
