Tom Rosenstiel and Bill Kovach, authors of The Elements of Journalism, have a new book coming out in November. It’s called Blur and is dedicated to helping citizens evaluate the quality and credibility of journalism in their lives. Should be a must read for those of us who care about true journalism.
Sounds fascinating, Mike. No doubt a must-read. Does ”Blur” refer to the blurring of the lines between news and opinion, the blurring of lines between ”professional” and ”amateur” journalists, the blurring of knowing what sources can be trusted, or all of the above? We had Kovach and Rosenstiel here for a News Council event in 2001, talking about their first book. Think they’d come out again? Let’s ask….
Thanks, both of you for having this conversation here @mikefancher @johnhamer — This is the sort of good information usually exchanged in person, on the phone, or in email. With the conversation in this open format, anyone can benefit. I’ve seen some, similar benefit from Twitter, except for that 140 character limit getting in the way.
And I’ll be picking up Blur.
