Climate Change in the Newsroom: Journalists’ Evolving Standards of Objectivity When Covering Global Warming

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study investigated how experienced U.S. environmental reporters view the professional norm of objectivity when covering climate change. In-depth interviews (N = 11) revealed a paradox: Most still profess belief in objectivity even as they reject or redefine it. It emerged that journalists should use objective practices and not reveal their own biases, including advocating for the environment. Additionally, participants have radically redefined “balance” now advocating a “weight-of-evidence” approach (Dunwoody, 2005) based on scientific consensus.
