Abstract:

A random sample of news editors and directors assessed a triangle of factors-- news credibility, news control and news sources—in their news decisions on embedded reporting. This study, coupled with qualitative data, surveys the perceptions of the nation’s news decision-makers. It examines what mattered the most to them in embedded journalism. Support was found for a matrix of factors affecting embedded journalism practice, and particularly individual level of factors, i.e., professional background, individual characteristics, professional roles, routine practices, even during war time. National news sources, particularly, newspapers, and affiliate news outlets and the Associated Press were perceived to be the prominent players. Respondents considered accuracy, reliability and fairness as significant in the credibility of embedded news reports. This study suggests an important consideration for embedded journalists’ reporting and offers an insight for public information officials in their strategic approach to embedded journalists.
