Description

Political Journalism explores practices of political journalism, ranging from American 'civic journalism' to the press corps covering the European Union in Brussels, from Bangkok newsrooms to French and Italian scandal hunters. Challenging both the 'mediamalaise' thesis and the notion of the journalist as the faithful servant of democracy, it explores political journalism in the making and maps the opportunities and threats encountered by political journalism in the contemporary sphere.

Contents

Part 1: The Cross-Management of the Interdependencies between Journalists and Politicians

Part 2: Towards a Cynical Coverage of Politics?

Part 3: Changes in Political Journalism: an Opportunity or Threat for Democracy?
