|Fakulta / Pracoviště MU|
|Popis||This research report of the EU-funded NEWSREEL2 project consortium focusses on recent developments and challenges in nine different fields of journalism, outlining recommendations for journalism training and education. Masaryk University authors contributed the third chapter Improving Democratic Sensibility to the report. Even though their democratic role is clear for most journalists and journalism students, the new challenges of potential pressures (e.g., political, economic, public service media, technological innovation) and their ethical solutions make it necessary to focus on improving democratic sensibility in journalism and media education. This field covers the following specific three aspects: (i) the media and journalists in democratic societies; (ii) the power of the media in democratic societies; and (iii) the responsibility of journalists in a democratic society.|
