Abstract

How do journalists know what they know? Who gets to decide what good journalism is and when it's done right? This text contends that, despite thoughtful explorations of the role of publics in journalism, the profession's methodologies and practices still don't adequately address matters of race, gender, intersectionality and settler colonialism. Drawing on their five years of research with journalists in the US and Canada, in a variety of news organizations from startups and freelancers to mainstream media, the authors investigate modern journalism's founding ideals and methods and their relationship to power to examine emerging multiple journalisms.
