The Changing World of Journalism

Journalism as we know it is regularly changing. A journalist is no longer somebody that just reports, write articles or searches for a journalist. We are all so much more than that, we contribute to the everyday process of finding, sharing, confirming news whether it is minor or major. It is vital to be able to multi-task, to carry out whatever task is needed to complete your story instead of the traditional journalist who would normally just write...

Is the 'Need for Speed' Killing the Media... And Us?

Paul Blanchard | Posted 17.03.2014 | UK
Paul Blanchard

Breaking news used to be just that: hard news, a big story that had just happened. Today rolling 24/7 TV news shows need their yellow ticker to contain something all the time. They're no longer content to have no ticker when there's nothing to say. The ticker has become a roundup of all stories breaking or not. Where do they go from here? What happens when there is some real breaking news?

While its true that technology has the ability to and is expanding our consciousness and our reach and access when wanting to obtain, explore and digest information this also gives us the scope to become information junkies - encyclopaedias with an opinion and the ability to churn out a fact about everything and anything.

In recent years, the January transfer window has become its own spectacle within the football calendar, but how necessary is the back and forth of rumours? How much of what we read actually happens?

I've spent the last year collecting Journalese, the language of news, and have just published a book that offers to explain what it all means. The thorny issue of sourcing has got its own chapter, and when it came out, I was taken to task over two entries..

It's Immigration, Stupid

My bedside radio began spouting all sort of emotive nonsense as early as 6am and Sky News appear to be on the same bandwagon. It appears people across the length and breadth of the UK are up in arms about the sheer numbers of 'foreigners' bombarding these shores and turning our isle into an unrecognisable 'melting pot' nightmare.

Does Obama Go It Alone?

As the week begins President Obama faces the toughest test of his presidency to date. Through a combination of factors, some of his own making and some beyond his control, he has boxed himself and the US Government into a corner and there appears to be no easy way out.

Obama's Crossroads

President Obama has to make a crucial decision on the US response to Syrian President Assad's use of chemical weapons and deliver the speech of a lifetime on the 50th Anniversary of the "I Have A Dream Speech" in the shadow of one of the greatest orators of all time - Martin Luther King Jr on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

No matter how hard he tries to focus on his domestic agenda, the president is plagued by a never-ending stream of international crises demanding his attention. And right now Egypt is clearly front and centre.

The Royal Baby & The Cult Of Celebrity

While most 24hour news channels, Sky included, normally stay clear of the hollow vacuum of celebrity tittle tattle, the birth of the future King gave them an excuse to relieve themselves of serious journalism. Commercial breaks are now greeted with a nauseating montage of the day's events, compeered by the usually hard-nosed Kay Burley, prancing around like Fern Cotton.

Obama, Congress and the Mid-Terms

When everyone returns in September, Mr Obama will also be forced to focus on keeping control of the Senate in Democratic hands (which will now be harder than ever) and picking up more seats in the House of Representatives. If he is unsuccessful with these political endeavours in the mid-terms, his legacy will then rest only upon the accomplishments of his first term in office.

I was reading through the morning papers when the office rang: "Kate is in Labour. Can you make your way down to the Lindo Wing as soon as possible?" It's the call I had been waiting almost a month for. My baby bag was packed and had been cluttering up the hall since the start of July. It was crammed with everything I could possibly need for an open ended job. I had been in labour for three days with my son so I was prepared for a long wait...

Trayvon Martin Verdict - Race in America

Jon-Christopher Bua

There is a deep distrust in the black community that the criminal justice system can ever be fair to them. The numbers alone of young black men who are arrested or incarcerated gives credence to their concerns. In fact, one wonders if the situation were reversed and Trayvon Martin had shot George Zimmerman would he have been acquitted?

Obama's Crisis of Trust

Jon-Christopher Bua | Posted 23.08.2013 | UK Politics
Jon-Christopher Bua

As the saying goes "presidential candidates campaign in poetry and if they are lucky enough to win, they govern in prose". Presidential Candidate Barack Obama was especially good at campaigning in poetry. Perhaps that is why, even though he has won re-election for a second term, he is unwilling to dismantle his campaign appartus and get into the down and dirty, nitty-gritty work of governing in hard edged well disciplined prose.
