“The Reconstruction of American Journalism”

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 ottobre 2009

It is an extraordinary report on the present and future of our profession, written by Leonard Downie, former editor of The Washington Post, and Michael Schudson, an author, teacher, and scholar on journalism and democracy. The report was commissioned by the Columbia Journalism School and the link below is to a shorter version edited by and for the Columbia Journalism Review.  Downie and Schudson’s assignment was to take a comprehensive, clearheaded look at the enormous changes taking place in American journalism, to assess them, and to make recommendations for the future. What is unusual about the report is that it focuses resolutely on a particular function of the press: what it calls “accountability journalism.” This, as the report points out, was not a part of the Founders’ original conception of the press as reflected in the First Amendment, but it has come to be a vital part of democratic life, and it is seriously threatened by the economic turmoil in the news business. The report does not envision newspapers disappearing, but it also does not regard restoring newspaper staffs to their former size as possible. It looks forward to a new, mostly digital, era of news production, in which newspapers will continue to have a leading role, but as part of a much larger cast of featured players, including nonprofit and public media.  The report ends with six specific recommendations for creating an ecosystem in which reporting and accountability journalism can thrive.  We also include a letter from Nicholas Lemann, dean of the J-school, about the project, and reactions from four  media thinkers who we asked to critique the report. Soon we’ll add a podcast Q&A with the authors.
