Quality of Journalism

Quality of journalism, in journalism, within journalism. Irrespective of the phrasing (which can carry nuances we will not discuss here), this concept has a longstanding tradition within the scientific field of journalism and communication studies. However, in recent years, due to the economic and technological transformations in the media ecosystem — in which journalism operates — this debate has gained renewed interest, seeking solutions or strategies that allow understanding and addressing numerous issues. These include the need for new business models or the sustainability of journalism (according to this argument’s theoretical perspectives), the fight against misinformation, the interplay between journalism — and the production of journalistic narratives — with formal professional sources (consultancies, public relations) or informal ones (spin doctors) or even the profound transformations in newsroom dynamics and work routines.
