Abstract

Journalism continues to wrestle economic and epistemic pressures in response to the impact of digitization. Questions about: What is journalism? Who is a journalist? And how do we fund it? Are not new and continue to swirl in a high-choice, low-trust, information environment in which news and traditional forms of journalism are increasingly outnumbered by alternatives. It is in this context that Tony Harcup, now an Emeritus Fellow in Journalism at the University of Sheffield, asks the question: What is the point of news?
