Abstract:

Calls for greater transparency in journalism seem to share the notion that it is a key component in building public trust. Last year, The New York Times launched Talk to the Newsroom, an online question-and-answer forum, as part of an effort to preserve the newspaper’s credibility. This study uses textual analysis to examine how transparency plays a role in the interaction between readers and editors in Talk to the Newsroom. It finds that readers wanted to learn about the processes and judgments behind the Times’ decisions, but editors’ responses were guarded. Editors displayed great candor when describing newsroom procedures but were less likely to engage in discussion about news judgment and motives.
