Celebrity Journalists: Drawing Lines And Tangents Alli, Allie, Emily, Meg, Melissa Meet the press William Randolph Hearst Sensationalism New York Journal The Maine
1898 Objectivism "Don't be afraid to make a mistake; your readers might like it." Benjamin Franklin Walter Cronkite Matt Drudge George Stephanopoulos "The function of the journalist is to improve and educate readers by widening individual views, by expanding their vision, and inevitably by getting away from narrow self-interest." Citizen Professional Political Satire Mixed "And that's the way it is." “I know TV affects things, but I don’t see any way around it...And we can do good things. Before we presented the first coverage of political conventions, the people of America didn’t really know how conventions worked. They didn’t know how democracy worked. TV showed them how.” "For it seems now more certain than ever that the bloody experience of Vietnam is to end in a stalemate...To say that we are closer to victory today is to believe, in the face of the evidence, the optimists who have been wrong in the past." "It's {Still] the economy, stupid." 1992- The war room and bill clinton 2002- "This week" and abc George's bottom line and the transition Matt Drudge has been criticized as "an idiot with a modem" and "a threat to democracy." He personally believes, however, "[one] would be amazed by what the ordinary guy knows." This is a historical assessment of the effects that celebrity journalists have had on the evolution of communication media. Historically, we have come full circle and are returning to a citizen journalist system. IS THIS WHAT WE WANT??? What model is best for democracy?
Do we prefer a multiaxial idea of people drawing their own news sources or a central "royalty?" Do we want someone who has their hands in both jars, politics and journalism?
Do we trust citizen journalists, politicians, celebrities, or professional journalists most? Citations:
