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



Abstract:

This study analyzes journalistic discourse about news judgment, news selection and newsworthiness in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The intent is to understand how the notions of newsworthiness, news selection or news judgment came to be expressed in normative terms in the journalistic field. The study finds discursive strategies that explained news judgment in terms of a special skill that journalists possessed, that downplayed judgment while shifting focus to the external qualities of events, and that explained news judgment in terms of the social and economic value of the information provided.
