mass media and society 3
What is the role of the professional journalist? What do we mean when we say that in today’s era we have expanded this role to include citizen journalists? Does this affect how we share news and information in a free society?
Think about the traditional work and role of the journalist as you approach this question. Consider the journalists portrayed in the movie, All the President’s Men, who were real-life journalists in the 1970s. Then consider how the role of journalists have changed, including how social media is creating a form of citizen journalist where everyone with access to a smartphone and the internet can film, post, and circulate stories of interest.
