Like the technologies that support it, the craft of online journalism is evolving quickly. This timely book helps students develop standards of excellence, through interviews with more than 30 writers, editors and producers, and dozens of examples of strong work. The author provides a framework of concepts to show how the field is evolving and challenged by competition, staffing limitations, and other pressures. Discussion is organized around four key elements: speed and accuracy with depth in breaking news; comprehensiveness in multimedia content; open-endedness in story development, including public contributions; and conversation with users. Chapter-length treatments of these topics bring home the realities of online work to students, who also come to appreciate how excellence and ethics online go hand in hand.

Online media present both old and new ethical issues for journalists who must make decisions in an interactive, instantaneous environment short on normative standards or guidelines. This user-friendly book guides prospective and professional journalists through ethical questions encountered only online. Including real-life examples and perspectives from online journalists in every chapter, the book examines the issues of gathering information, reporting, interviewing, and writing for mainstream news organizations on the Web. It considers the ethical implications of linking, interactivity, verification, transparency, and Web advertising, as well as the effects of convergence on newsrooms. It also addresses the question of who is a journalist and what is journalism in an age when anyone can be a publisher. Each chapter includes a complex case study that promotes critical thinking and classroom discussion about how to apply the ethical issues covered.

Ubiquitous news, global information access, instantaneous reporting, interactivity, multimedia content, extreme customization: Journalism is undergoing the most fundamental transformation since the rise of the penny press in the nineteenth century. Here is a report from the front lines on the impact and implications for journalists and the public alike. John Pavlik, executive director of the Center for New Media at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, argues that the new media can revitalize news gathering and reengage an increasingly distrustful and alienated citizenry. The book is a valuable reference on everything from organizing a new age newsroom to job hunting in the new media.

The American Antitrust Institute (AAI) was founded in 1998 as an independent, nonprofit education, research, and advocacy organization. Celebrating its tenth anniversary during the important 2008 presidential campaign, the AAI determined to utilize this year to generate an integrated vision for re-energizing competition policy in the United States. Ours is a vision that departs in substantial ways from the outlook that has driven competition policy for much of the past generation. We offer it to the next administration without presupposition as to which party will control Congress or who the President will be. Traditionally, the ideal of competition as the preferred regulator of business behavior has enjoyed bipartisan support, beginning with the introduction of the Sherman Act in 1890 by a Republican and its signing into law by a Republican. But interpretations of what constitutes healthy competition and priorities for enforcement have varied over time, sometimes dramatically. Indeed, there have been periods of war or depression when the ideal of competition has been eclipsed by other priorities and policies. Yet, time and again, the ideal has been rejuvenated - by both Republicans and Democrats. We argue that we should now be entering a period of reinterpretation and rejuvenation. This Report is the edited product of a set of committees formed in the fall of 2007. The committee chairs and participants are all members of the AAI's Advisory Board. The Report consists of ten chapters and an introduction to competition policy and the philosophy behind the Report. The first set of chapters examines substantive areas of antitrust law and economics, including cartel enforcement, monopolization, merger policy, and a relative newcomer to antitrust discourse, buyer power. The following chapters then offer prescriptions for building the institutions of public enforcement and restoring the legitimacy of private enforcement. Finally, the report concludes with four chapters devoted to several of the key economic sectors in which competition policy issues are currently important: media, food, health, and energy. Together, these sectors account for more than one-third of the national economy.

The rapid growth of online media has led to new complications in journalism ethics and practice. While traditional ethical principles may not fundamentally change when information is disseminated online, applying them across platforms has become more challenging as new kinds of interactions develop between journalists and audiences. In Ethics for Digital Journalists, Lawrie Zion and David Craig draw together the international expertise and experience of journalists and scholars who have all been part of the process of shaping best practices in digital journalism. Drawing on contemporary events and controversies like the Boston Marathon bombing and the Arab Spring, the authors examine emerging best practices in everything from transparency and verification to aggregation, collaboration, live blogging, tweeting and the challenges of digital narratives. At a time when questions of ethics and practice are challenged and subject to intense debate, this book is designed to provide students and practitioners with the insights and skills to realize their potential as professionals.

Online news sites play an ever-pervasive role in the daily gathering and flow of political information. Media has always played an intermediary role in the way that citizens receive and process news, but, with the speed of information transmission, the segmentation of news sources, and the rise of citizen journalism, issues of authority, audience, and even the definition of "news" have shifted and become blurred. News on the Internet synthesizes research on developing and current patterns of online news provision with the literature on traditional, offline media to create a conceptual map for understanding the way that public affairs and news are presented and consumed on the internet. Tewksbury and Rittenberg look at the dual role of the internet as a source of authoritative news and as a vehicle for citizens in contemporary democracies to create and share political information. Throughout, they address the tension between the benefits of internet news provision, specifically increased citizen engagement, and the negative, perhaps counterintuitive, effects: the fragmentation of knowledge and polarization of opinion in contemporary democracies. News on the Internet focuses on these points of conflict and contradiction in the online news environment and offers conclusions and predictions for how these phenomena will develop in the future.
