Back to the Future: The Resurgence of Community in American Society, and Community Journalism in the Newspaper Industry and Higher Education.
Lauterer, Jock
America is in the midst of the age of the emergent and enlightened community. Citizens increasingly demand from their newspapers high-quality, explanatory coverage of local issues. Newspapers large and small are responding. Community newspapers are growing, and many big city media outlets are rethinking their news coverage philosophy in terms of civic journalism. Civic and community journalism are two leaves on the same branch, alike and yet not the same. This paper discusses the similarities between the two, why the current trends are healthy, why teaching community journalism is important, and how to introduce and integrate a community journalism component into an existing journalism program. Contains 30 references. (Author/RS)
