1. What is the point of news? -- 2. Contextualising News values : a review of the literature -- 3. Alternative values in news reporting -- 4. Ethical journalism for the public good -- 5. Power and agency in the news industry -- 6: Six stories and a headline -- 7. The point of news : conclusion and implications
Summary: This book questions whether the news we get is as useful for citizens as it could, or should, be. This international study of news is based on re-thinking and re-conceptualising the news values that underpin understandings of journalism. It goes beyond empirical descriptions of what journalism is to explore normative ideas of what it might become if practised alongside commitments to ethical listening, active citizenship and social justice. It draws lessons from both alternative and mainstream media output from both journalists and scholars from both practice and theory. It challenges dominant news values by drawing on insights from feminism, peace journalism and other forms of critical thinking that are usually found on the margins of journalism studies. This original and engaging contribution to knowledge proposes an alternative set of contemporary news values that have significant implications for the news industry, for journalism education and for democracy itself.
