Journalism is now easily accessed and also participated in without leaving the comfort of your own home. Interactivity has been central to the developments of online media and in many eyes was already a big missing link in the media before it became a buzzword used by the online community. 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]

Sensational Journalism and Its Effects

New Journalism and Truman Capote's Case

- Literature—the dictionary defines it being the art of written works that is designed to entertain, educate and instruct; writers use literature in an attempt to transfer their ideas from paper to the reader; for some, this task means bringing their story to a different place and time that is entirely separate from what the reader could perceive as ordinary, on order to serve the writer’s intent. With this the impossible, becomes the probable, and the worst fear possibly imagined becomes the breathed reality; with no stated separation between the living, and the dying....   [tags: informative essay]
