The End of Journalism

News in the Twenty-First Century

Alec Charles and Gavin Stewart

This book offers an international perspective on the current – and future – state of contemporary news-making. The thirteen contributors explore how evolving conditions and technologies of production and reception are changing the practices of journalism across the world – from Britain to Latin America, from the United States to China. The essays examine the role of the journalist in the era of mobile journalism, online journalism and citizen journalism, and ask how our understanding of journalism has changed and will continue to change in response to the rise of the blog, the camera phone and new modes of broadcast and publication. Finally, the volume asks how a new kind of journalist might continue to act as the mediator between people and power in a modern democratic state.
