Overview

The public (or civic) journalism movement has sparked an ongoing debate within journalistic circles. In this book, leading journalists, communication scholars, and political scientists assess the state of contemporary public journalism, looking at its origins, the arguments for and against public journalism, and the state of political knowledge. Addressing theoretical and academic notions of public journalism--in conjunction with the possible role of the modern university--this timely volume explores the potential of public journalism to help elevate the public's political knowledge.

Jay Rosen
What does it take to make democracy work and what should be asked of the press? To center a movement around a question is not to deny that the question needs an answer. And there are answers found through these pages. . . . [This book] brings together professors with a deep grasp of their scholarly fields, journalism educators with time to study the experiment, and working journalists with the benefit of experience.
