Journalism in Australia is struggling with a crisis of identity, image and function. What is a journalist? And does journalism make a difference? Can it reclaim public confidence and restore the shine to its tarnished image? Do the news media matter any more? Is there such a thing as a public service role or function for journalism? Journalism: Theory in Practice examines journalism purposes, practices and processes. It presents a theoretical and philosophical exposition of journalism. Taking a holistic approach to the reporting process, it is informed by those who have worked in the industry; it is written from the perspective of news practitioners. It is not simply an account of the daily practice of journalism, but focuses on the functions of journalists and journalism. Written in clear language it draws on 'real-world' examples of daily news practice to illustrate theoretical concepts. It goes beyond routine news gathering and writing processes to acknowledge the fundamental inter-dependence of theory and practice, recognising both as essential threads in the fabric of journalism.
