  • 1. Journalism 2.0 [video], in Renewing the Journalist&apos;s Creed: The Ethics of Journalism in the 21st Century<br />----Zhichun Lin (Anita)<br /> Z3284416 <br />
  • 2. Outline <br />The journalist’s creed review<br /> Citizen journalism<br />New creed of journalists in the 21stcentury <br />
  • 3. Question: what do you think is the journalist’s creed ? <br />
  • 4. Review “The Journalist’s Creed”<br />--Walter Williams<br />
  • 5. Content <br />I believe in the profession of journalism.<br />
  • 6. I believe that the public journal is a public trust; that all connected with it are, to the full measure of their responsibility, trustees for the public; that acceptance of lesser service than the public service is betrayal of this trust.<br />
  • 7. I believe that clear thinking and clear statement, accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism.<br />
  • 8. I believe that a journalist should write only what he holds in his heart to be true.<br />
  • 9. I believe that suppression of the news, for any consideration other than the welfare of society, is indefensible.<br />
  • 10. I believe that no one should write as a journalist what he would not say as a gentleman; that bribery by one’s own pocketbook is as much to be avoided as bribery by the pocketbook of another; that individual responsibility may not be escaped by pleading another’s instructions or another’s dividends.<br />
  • 11. I believe that advertising, news and editorial columns should alike serve the best interests of the readers; that a single standard of helpful truth and cleanness should prevail for all; that the supreme test of good journalism is the measure of its public service.<br />
  • 12. I believe that the journalist which succeeds best- and best deserves success- fears God and honors man; is stoutly independent, unmoved by pride or opinion or greed of power, constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient; always respectful of its readers but always unafraid; is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of privilege or the clamour of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance and, as far as law and honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal change; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world comradeship; is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.<br />
  • 13. Citizen Journalism<br />
  • 14. Question: What is citizen journalism ?<br />
  • 15. Definition<br /> “the act of a citizen, or a group of citizens, playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analysing and disseminating news and information”<br />-Bowman and Wills, 2003<br />Watch a clip<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3QtzY7k__A<br />
