Hartley, John (2008) Journalism as a human right : the cultural approach to journalism. In Loffelholz, Martin & Weaver, David (Eds.) Global Journalism Research: Theories, Methods, Findings, Future. Blackwell Publishing, New York, pp. 39-51.


What are the implications for journalism (and journalism education) when everyone in a democracy not only has the right to be informed and to hold opinions but also to publish them, and to publish them as journalism? This chapter pursues that question as a way of showing how cultural studies’ longstanding interest in the consumption and social impact of news poses some challenging questions for the model of journalism founded on professional practice and industrial organization.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
