Abstract

In recent times, both journalism and who is defined as a journalist have undergone significant change. With the growth of the internet, and the subsequent ability of anyone with a smartphone camera and a web connection to publish, the business model of journalism that had remained stable for decades has been declared broken and the public service model of journalism under threat. Meanwhile, a US president communicates via Twitter; Facebook Live spreads news while the mainstream media scramble to keep up.
