Exploring Journalism and Computer Science Student Collaboration
A Norwegian case study

Introduction The digitalization of journalism and convergence of media platforms has resulted in an increased overlap between technology and journalism. From a professional perspective, this means that technology developers have begun working as technology developer-journalists and computer science engineers have shown a growing interest in journalism (Lewis & Usher, 2014). Leading voices in the field of journalism have also pushed for journalists to embrace computer science (Lewis & Usher, 2016) and pointed out the profound implications of digitalization for

Journalism and the political structure
The local media system in Norway

Introduction Media and political structures are intimately connected. In fact, media systems theory suggests that media models are rooted in the political and economic fabric of a society. Journalism, as such, is in a ‘close relationship to the political world’ ( Hallin & Mancini, 2004 : 13). While media systems theory assumes that this is the case at the level of the nation state, few attempts have been made to analyse this system connection within the nation state – such as the relationship between the local political decision-making level and local news

Local Journalism when the Journalists Leave Town
Probing the news gap that hyperlocal media are supposed to fill

. Notwithstanding the closures, these towns are firmly anchored in the same domestic, linguistic and cultural contexts, and their citizens have the same information needs regarding polity and community matters. However, as news organisations move out, it will take more resources for journalists to cover these municipalities in situ . At the same time, new forms of (hyper)local journalism have emerged, raising hopes and questions about how they fit into a wider news ecology and what they can contribute to their communities. Thus, there are two simultaneous developments in local

Disrupting journalism from scratch
Outlining the figure of the entrepreneur–journalist in four French pure players

Introduction Despite the common idea that the internet is “killing” the media, the past decade has seen ongoing renewal in journalism, particularly online. In a 2012 article ( Christensen et al., 2012 ), David Skok, a journalist who was a Nieman Lab fellow, paired up with Harvard economist Clayton M. Christensen to encourage the media to “be the disruptor”. Together, they adapted Christensen’s original theory of disruptive innovation to the media, according to which businesses should regularly rethink their practice to match the evolving society and market

Cognitive Theories and the Concept of Journalism


The general aim of cognitivists - the attempt to compare logical and illogical, rational and irrational in the human behavior - can be considered as one of the main object not only in the psychology, but also in the journalism. If you don’t take into account assumed problems, the truth can be treated as a lie, an importance as an irrationality, an advantage as defects. In practice the ignorance of balancing, consonance and knowledge for the benefit of “must” turned round for tendentiousness, propaganda, manipulation, rationing of authoritarian and totalitarian models of journalism or for passing from journalistic standards in total. Therefore the article describes the spectrum of cognition in the context of modern Journalism and problems of Media practices, including the balance in journalism in terms of theories of consistency.

The Difference Culture Makes
Comparing Swedish news and cultural journalism on the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris

this event in different national contexts, but less well researched is that there may also be variations of meanings made of this event in different subfields of journalism. Most studies of media and terrorism focus on news journalism in the mainstream media or, more recently, the circulation of stories in social media. However, the rise of terrorist attacks on cultural targets like magazines, music or leisure venues prompts the question of whether cultural journalism as a “specialised subfield” ( Kristensen & Riegert, 2017a ) provides a different overall

Unboxing news automation
Exploring imagined affordances of automation in news journalism

, 2015 ; Wu et al., 2018 ). News automation (NA), also known as automated journalism, converts structured data into text based on a set of rules. It is limited to specialized areas: the current systems are employed in well-understood domains, such as finance, sports and election reporting. Nonetheless, there is an interest in conceptualizing, developing and deploying automated journalism in news production. This article aims to capture a specific moment of technological emergence by analysing the way in which media representatives talk about the imagined affordances
