For a century and a half, journalists made a good business out of selling the latest news or selling ads next to that news. Now that news pours out of the Internet and our mobile devices—fast, abundant, and mostly free—that era is ending. Our best journalists, Mitchell Stephens argues, instead must offer original, challenging perspectives—not just slightly more thorough accounts of widely reported events. His book proposes a new standard: “wisdom journalism,” an amalgam of the more rarified forms of reporting—exclusive, enterprising, investigative—and informed, insightful, interpretive, explanatory, even opinionated takes on current events. This book features an original, sometimes critical examination of contemporary journalism, both on- and offline. And it finds inspiration for a more ambitious and effective understanding of journalism in examples from twenty-first-century articles and blogs, as well as in a selection of outstanding twentieth-century journalism and Benjamin Franklin’s eighteenth-century writings. Most attempts to deal with journalism’s current crisis emphasize technology. This book emphasizes mindsets and the need to rethink what journalism has been and might become.

A healthy democracy requires vigorous, uncompromising investigative journalism. But today the free press faces a daunting set of challenges: in the face of harsh criticism from powerful politicians and the threat of lawsuits from wealthy individuals, media institutions are confronted by an uncertain financial future and stymied by a judicial philosophy that takes a narrow view of the protections that the Constitution affords reporters. In Journalism Under Fire, Stephen Gillers proposes a bold set of legal and policy changes that can overcome these obstacles to protect and support the work of journalists. Gillers argues that law and public policy must strengthen the freedom of the press, including protection for news gathering and confidential sources. He analyzes the First Amendment’s Press Clause, drawing on older Supreme Court cases and recent dissenting opinions to argue for greater press freedom than the Supreme Court is today willing to recognize. Beyond the First Amendment, Journalism Under Fire advocates policies that facilitate and support the free press as a public good. Gillers proposes legislation to create a publicly funded National Endowment for Investigative Reporting, modeled on the national endowments for the arts and for the humanities; improvements to the Freedom of Information Act; and a national anti-SLAPP law, a statute to protect media organizations from frivolous lawsuits, to help journalists and the press defend themselves in court. Gillers weaves together questions of journalistic practice, law, and policy into a program that can ensure a future for investigative reporting and its role in our democracy.

Edward Snowden's release of classified NSA documents exposed the widespread government practice of mass surveillance in a democratic society. The publication of these documents, facilitated by three journalists, as well as efforts to criminalize the act of being a whistleblower or source, signaled a new era in the coverage of national security reporting. The contributors to Journalism After Snowden analyze the implications of the Snowden affair for journalism and the future role of the profession as a watchdog for the public good. Integrating discussions of media, law, surveillance, technology, and national security, the book offers a timely and much-needed assessment of the promises and perils for journalism in the digital age. Journalism After Snowden is essential reading for citizens, journalists, and academics in search of perspective on the need for and threats to investigative journalism in an age of heightened surveillance. The book features contributions from key players involved in the reporting of leaks of classified information by Edward Snowden, including Alan Rusbridger, former editor-in-chief of The Guardian; ex-New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson; legal scholar and journalist Glenn Greenwald; and Snowden himself. Other contributors include dean of Columbia Graduate School of Journalism Steve Coll, Internet and society scholar Clay Shirky, legal scholar Cass Sunstein, and journalist Julia Angwin. Topics discussed include protecting sources, digital security practices, the legal rights of journalists, access to classified data, interpreting journalistic privilege in the digital age, and understanding the impact of the Internet and telecommunications policy on journalism. The anthology's interdisciplinary nature provides a comprehensive overview and understanding of how society can protect the press and ensure the free flow of information.

Engaged Journalism explores the changing relationship between news producers and audiences and the methods journalists can use to secure the attention of news consumers. Based on Jake Batsell's extensive experience and interaction with more than twenty innovative newsrooms, this book shows that, even as news organizations are losing their agenda-setting power, journalists can still thrive by connecting with audiences through online technology and personal interaction. Batsell conducts interviews with and observes more than two dozen traditional and startup newsrooms across the United States and the United Kingdom. Traveling to Seattle, London, New York City, and Kalamazoo, Michigan, among other locales, he attends newsroom meetings, combs through internal documents, and talks with loyal readers and online users to document the successes and failures of the industry's experiments with paywalls, subscriptions, nonprofit news, live events, and digital tools including social media, data-driven interactives, news games, and comment forums. He ultimately concludes that, for news providers to survive, they must constantly listen to, interact with, and fulfill the specific needs of their audiences, whose attention can no longer be taken for granted. Toward that end, Batsell proposes a set of best practices based on effective, sustainable journalistic engagement.

»Endlich muß noch betont werden, daß Wirtschaftsgeschichte [...] nicht, wie die materialistische Geschichtsauffassung glauben machen will, identisch mit der Geschichte der gesamten Kultur überhaupt ist. Diese ist nicht ein Ausfluß, nicht lediglich eine Funktion jener; vielmehr stellt die Wirtschaftsgeschichte nur einen Unterbau dar, ohne dessen Kenntnis allerdings die fruchtbare Erforschung irgendeines der großen Gebiete der Kultur nicht denkbar ist.« (Aus dem Text)

A recent Times-Mirror survey has shown that 65 percent of Americans prefer television over other news media for news coverage, an increase of 10 percent in just over a decade. To understand the enormous impact television news has had on American life, it is important to define the contributions made by various individuals in the field, as well as to recognize the news programs and broadcast journalism issues that have captivated, enlightened, and informed our nation. Never before have the forces and individuals of television news been so thoroughly and authoritatively examined.

Digital Broadcasting presents an introduction to how the classic notion of 'broadcasting' has evolved and is being reinterpreted in an age of digitization and convergence. The book argues that 'digital broadcasting' is not a contradiction in terms, but-on the contrary-both terms presuppose and need each other. Drawing upon an interdisciplinary and international field of research and theory, it looks at current developments in television and radio broadcasting on the level of regulation and policy, industries and economics, production and content, and audience and consumption practices.

This is a work of media history and media criticism with a human face. It presents profiles of 11 journalists who left some of the country’s biggest mainstream media outlets, and took on new career challenges. Their stories give the reader a vivid sense of what it means to be a reporter and to cover big news events. But this book goes beyond media memoir. The book also explores the factors that led talented people to re-assess the profession they loved, and raises profound questions about the economic structure of news organizations and the culture of newsrooms, and their impact on the practice of journalism. By demonstrating that there is life after journalism, and that the skills the profession teaches remain valuable in other careers, this book also offers hope and direction to both aspiring and current journalists contemplating the future.

Paul Auster, der bekannte amerikanische Bestsellerautor, legt in Gestalt eines Rätselspiels sein bisher umfangreichstes Werk und Opus magnum vor: die vierfach unterschiedlich erzählte Geschichte eines jungen Amerikaners in den fünfziger und sechziger Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts – ein Epos voll mit Politik, Zeitgeschichte, Liebe, Leidenschaft und dem wechselvollen Spiel des Zufalls. «4 3 2 1» – das sind vier Variationen eines Lebens: Archibald Ferguson, von allen nur Archie genannt, wächst im Newark der fünfziger Jahre auf. «Was für ein interessanter Gedanke», sagt er sich als kleiner Junge, «sich vorzustellen, wie für ihn alles anders sein könnte, auch wenn er selbst immer derselbe bliebe. Ja, alles war möglich, und nur weil etwas auf eine bestimmte Weise geschah, hieß das noch lange nicht, dass es nicht auch auf eine andere Weise geschehen konnte.» Im Verein mit der höheren Macht einer von Paul Auster raffiniert dirigierten literarischen Vorsehung entspinnen sich nun vier unterschiedliche Versionen von Archies Leben: provinziell und bescheiden; kämpferisch, aber vom Unglück verfolgt; betroffen und besessen von den Ereignissen der Zeit; künstlerisch genial begabt und nach den Sternen greifend. Und alle vier sind vollgepackt mit Abenteuern, Liebe, Lebenskämpfen und den Schlägen eines unberechenbaren Schicksals ... «4 3 2 1» ist ein faszinierendes Gedankenspiel und ein Höhepunkt in Austers Schaffen. Seine großen Themen, das Streben nach Glück, die Rolle des Zufalls, Politik und Zeitgeschichte von Hiroshima bis Vietnam – alle sind hier versammelt und verdichtet in den hoffnungsvollen Lebenswegen eines jungen Mannes, der sein Glück in der Welt zu finden sucht. (Einige Kapitel mit Nummerierung, aber ohne Text in diesem Buch sind künstlerische Absicht des Autors, keine technischen Fehler.)

Does objectivity in the news media exist? In The Invention of Journalism Ethics Stephen Ward argues that, given the current emphasis on interpretation, analysis, and perspective, journalists and the public need a new theory of objectivity. He explores the varied ethical assertions of journalists over the past few centuries, focusing on the changing relationship between journalist and audience. This historical analysis leads to an innovative theory of pragmatic objectivity that enables journalists and the public to recognize and avoid biased and unbalanced reporting. Ward convincingly demonstrates that journalistic objectivity is not a set of absolute standards but the same fallible but reasonable objectivity used for making decisions in other professions and public institutions.

Früher gab es einen Marktplatz und einen Markttag – mittlerweile haben die Läden immer länger geöffnet, und der Kapitalismus kolonialisiert die letzte Pore der Lebenswelt. In einer von wachsender Ungleichheit geprägten Gegenwart setzen viele Linke ihre letzte Hoffnung in die sozialen Medien, eine Haltung, die César Rendueles als naiven »Cyberfetischismus« kritisiert. Mit einem Gespür für große historische Bögen und einem an Slavoj Žižek erinnernden Talent, aus popkulturellen Referenzen theoretische Funken zu schlagen, legt er dar, dass politischer Wandel nur möglich sein wird, wenn wir die »Soziophobie«, die Angst vor der Kooperation mit den anderen, überwinden. »Wenn viele gleichzeitig dasselbe machen«, so Rendueles, »heißt das noch lange nicht, dass sie es gemeinsam tun.«

Wie beeinflusst sie Körper und Geist? Heute schon gegoogelt? Im Durchschnitt sind die Deutschen etwa zweieinhalb Stunden täglich online. Neuesten Studien zufolge, so zeigt Bestsellerautor und IT-Experte Nicholas Carr, bewirkt bereits eine Onlinestunde am Tag erstaunliche neurologische Prägungen in unserem Gehirn. Wer das Internet nach Informationen, sozialen Kontakten oder Unterhaltung durchforstet, verwendet, anders als beim Buch- oder Zeitunglesen, einen Großteil seiner geistigen Energie auf die Beherrschung des Mediums selbst. Und macht sich um die Inhalte, buchstäblich, keinen Kopf. Die Folge: Im Internetzeitalter lesen wir oberflächlicher, lernen wir schlechter, erinnern wir uns schwächer denn je. Von den Anpassungsleistungen unseres Gehirns profitieren nicht wir, sondern die Konzerne, die mit Klickzahlen Kasse machen. In seinem neuen Buch verbindet Carr, zwanzig Jahre nach Entstehung des World Wide Web, seine medienkritische Bilanz mit einer erhellenden Zeitreise durch Philosophie-, Technologie- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte – von Sokrates’ Skepsis gegenüber der Schrift, dem Menschen als Uhrwerk und Nietzsches Schreibmaschine bis zum User als Gegenstand aktueller Debatten und Studien. Und er vermittelt – jenseits von vagem Kulturpessimismus – anhand greifbarer Untersuchungen und Experimente, wie das Internet unser Denken verändert.
