Community journalists and relationships with sources and local organizations

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



Abstract:

Because of the more intimate setting of a smaller community, many community journalists face ethical challenges in balancing source relationships with traditional qualities of objectivity and detachment. Using qualitative, semi-structured interviews, grounded theory, and constant comparative analysis, this study examines the ways in which community journalism professionals manage their personal relationships with sources and community organizations.

The study also sought to explain the differences in relationship management between small weekly newspapers and larger community dailies. The interviews suggested community journalists are aware of conflicts of interest and as such try to exhibit professionalism and limit emotional responses to relationship formation. Community journalism professionals interviewed in the study examine individual situations closely with management. Newspaper size did not seem to be a major indicator of community involvement practices. Instead, a journalist’s training and background and a newspaper’s leadership and demographics weighed equally in responses.
