Quality journalism still matters, but in the digital age how can media organisations stay relevant and build audience while still protecting a commitment to accuracy, fairness, and independence?
In the digital age, one of the most complex challenges for media outlets is how to re-shape the editorial responsibilities of journalism itself. Which journalistic standards, many devised last century, still fit in the digital age? And which standards form the basis of a new type of journalism being pioneered by hybrid news sites that have come of age in the digital era?
A third form of journalism is emerging; one that combines the best of legacy standards and the new approaches of digital natives. Such a hybrid form requires a more streamlined set of editorial standards that fit the internet era.
Focusing on the key editorial standards of accuracy, independence, and impartiality, this session highlights ways that news outlets are re-shaping their editorial standards and using digital tools to build editorial integrity.
