Media Literacy: What´s the journalist´s role? 0 Reply

In the networked society the lack of information is not a problem, the problem is the lack of good information, or being able to choose the more accurate one, some say. Media literacy is found important for several reasons. Should journalists and newsrooms have a responsibility to work towards it? If so, who besides journalists should work for it? And how could be done?

2nd Session DC - Changing Societies, Changing Journalism

2nd Session DC – Changing Societies, Changing Journalism

 

Journalism is facing big challenges. Technology, internet, social changes, and other factors are bringing many questions to what and how is going to be the future of journalism. Is journalism still important? What’s the role of journalism in a networked society? Are people still interested in what journalists have to tell them? Do they trust journalism as a good source of information? Are there new paths for journalism? Is journalism still considered the 4th power?

For example, cases like Wikileaks, the Snowden case, and even more recent LuxLeaks, brought to discussion whistleblowing and its new ways. Technology, transparency and globalization are key words in this new framework.

Discussing journalists role in this framework is of great importance, because the relation between whistleblowers and journalists is changing.

The session will be moderated by Gustavo Cardoso, Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology, University Institute of Lisbon (CIES-IUL).

Special speakers will join us in DC Lisbon: Luis de Sousa, TIAC – TransparĂŞncia e Integridade, Associação CĂ­vica, JoĂŁo Paulo Pardal, TIAC – TransparĂŞncia e Integridade, Associação CĂ­vica, and Micael Pereira, Journalist at Expresso.

Other participants will join us in DC Novi Pazar and DC Rio de Janeiro.

NGOs and Journalism: a good combination? 1

Journalism is facing big challenges. Technology, internet, social changes, and other factors are bringing many questions to what and how is going to be the future of journalism. Is journalism still important? What’s the role of journalism in a networked society? Are people still interested in what journalists have to tell them? Do they trust journalism as a good source of information? Are there new paths for journalism? Is journalism still considered the 4th power?

In other hand, NGOs are increasingly became significant players as information intermediaries, working in cooperation with traditional news organizations, or even taking their place, says an investigation from the Center for Global Communication Studies. For example, there were several entries for ONGs for the last edition of Global Editors Network’s Data Journalism awards. What are the questions being raised by this «tendency»? The rising of advocacy journalism is here to stay? What kind of issues does this bring to journalism?

 

First session on "Censorship in a global and changing world: religion, politics and economics".
