Öffentlichkeit im Idealfall ist zu begreifen als diskursiver Raum, in dem gesellschaftlicher Konsens und Dissens auf der Grundlage geteilter Informationen generiert und diskutiert werden. Voraussetzung ist, dass ihre Mitglieder auch über die Informationen verfügen, die sie benötigen, um sich auf rationale Weise eine eigene Meinung zu allen gesellschaftlich relevanten Fragen bilden zu können. Der zunehmende Wegfall von Produktions- und Distributionsbarrieren, der mit der Etablierung ‚neuer‘ Medientechnologien einhergeht, hat eine erhebliche Zunahme der Öffentlichmachung partikularer Interessen zur Folge – eine Tatsache, die sich auch in Menge und Komplexität der angebotenen Informationen manifestiert. Der Bedarf an professionellen Instanzen, die in der Lage sind, diese Informationen vorzuselektieren, zu validieren und zu etwas zu verarbeiten, mit dem die öffentliche Meinung umgehen kann, steigt somit stetig. Auch dokumentarischer Film wird zunehmend zu Informations- und Aufklärungszwecken genutzt. Handicams und Camcorder ermöglichen es, schnell und ohne umfassende Vorkenntnisse Bewegtbildmaterial zu produzieren, das Internet dieses öffentlich zu machen, zu verbreiten und zu rezipieren. Viele Bürgerjournalisten nutzen die Möglichkeit derartiger Informationsherstellung und -verbreitung in dem Glauben, über das Erreichen einer Öffentlichkeit Veränderung bewirken zu können. Doch ohne eine professionelle Instanz, die das Material aufgreift und aufarbeitet, geht dieses citizen journalism footage – und somit eine der bedeutsamsten Informationsquellen unserer Zeit – nur allzu oft in der Komplexität des Cyberspace verloren. Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es daher zu untersuchen, inwiefern der klassische Dokumentarfilm als professionelle und etablierte Medieninstanz eine Aufarbeitung von citizen journalism footage im Sinne obiger Problemstellung gewährleisten kann und – vor dem Hintergrund einer von demokratischen Werten geleitete Funktionserwartung an die Medien – sollte.

Journalism entered the twenty-first century caught in a paradox. The world had more journalism, across a wider range of media, than at any time since the birth of the western free press in the eighteenth century. Western journalists had found themselves under a cloud of suspicion: from politicians, philosophers, the general public, anti-globalization radicals, religious groups, and even from fellow journalists. Critics argued that the news industry had lost its moral bearings, focusing onhigh investment returns rather than reporting and analysing the political, economic, and social issues of the day. Journalism has a central and profound impact on our worldview; we find it everywhere from newspapers and television, to radio and the Internet. In the new edition of this thought-provoking and provocative Very Short Introduction, Ian Hargreaves examines the world of contemporary journalism. By looking not only at what journalism has been in the past, but also what it is becoming in the digital age, he examines the big issues relating to reportage, warfare, celebrity culture, privacy, and technology worldwide. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Journalism in Crisis addresses the concerns of scholars, activists, and journalists committed to Canadian journalism as a democratic institution and as a set of democratic practices. The authors look within Canada and abroad for solutions for balancing the Canadian media ecology. Public policies have been central to the creation and shaping of Canada's media system and, rather than wait for new technologies or economic models, the contributors offer concrete recommendations for how public policies can foster journalism that can support democratic life in twenty-first century Canada. Their work, which includes new theoretical perspectives and valuable discussions of journalism practices in public, private, and community media, should be read by professional and citizen journalists, academics, media activists, policy makers and media audiences concerned about the future of democratic journalism in Canada.

This volume sets out the state-of-the-art in the discipline of journalism at a time in which the practice and profession of journalism is in serious flux. While journalism is still anchored to its history, change is infecting the field. The profession, and the scholars who study it, are reconceptualizing what journalism is in a time when journalists no longer monopolize the means for spreading the news. Here, journalism is explored as a social practice, as an institution, and as memory. The roles, epistemologies, and ethics of the field are evolving. With this in mind, the volume revisits classic theories of journalism, such as gatekeeping and agenda-setting, but also opens up new avenues of theorizing by broadening the scope of inquiry into an expanded journalism ecology, which now includes citizen journalism, documentaries, and lifestyle journalism, and by tapping the insights of other disciplines, such as geography, economics, and psychology. The volume is a go-to map of the field for students and scholars—highlighting emerging issues, enduring themes, revitalized theories, and fresh conceptualizations of journalism.
