Abstract

In a perpetually fluid and globally accessible news environment, identifying just who can be considered a “journalist” is no longer a simple matter. This entry explores three definitions: a historical one that summarizes how the occupation emerged and developed; a sociological one that explores how journalists do their work, including their roles and practices; and a normative one that considers use ethical principles and ideals to distinguish journalists from the growing number of others who engage in similar activities.
