Cover of the book The Changing Face of Journalism at Annenberg School for Communication ASC UPenn
Editor: Barbie Zelizer

An outgrowth of a 2007 symposium sponsored by the Scholars Program in Culture and Communication, this collection is introduced with an essay by Barbie Zelizer and organized into three sections: how tabloidization affects the journalistic landscape; how technology changes what we think we know about journalism; and how ‘truthiness’ tweaks our understanding of the journalistic tradition. Short section introductions contextualise the essays and highlight the issues that they raise, creating a coherent study of journalism today.
