The Future of News


If you think news should be fair and objective... it may be you are simply too young.

As Bruce Williams points out, less than a century ago, journalistic norms were far different than what many of us expect today.

Now those norms are undergoing a sea-change once again.

The Virginia author takes us through both the history, and possible future, of news.

Bruce Williams, PhD - Co-author After Broadcast News: Media Regimes, Democracy, and the New Information Environment  [Cambridge University Press, 2011]. Professor of Media Studies, University of Virginia.
