Journalists record history as the people's witness while presenting a forum for ideas and opinions. Drawing on case studies, this subject explores some of the issues that confront the contemporary journalist. Students examine the relationship between journalists and the political process, including the censoring of freedom of speech, the role of the reporter in war, and the decline of investigative journalism in the face of homogenised news.
