Abstract

As journalism barrels through the 21st century, its identity becomes more complex. Many of the giants of the last century—the New York Times, BBC, Le Monde, Asahi Shimbun—continue to produce news, gain access to elite sources, and reach large audiences.

New actors arise to challenge or supplement traditional news organizations, as do new types of practices or values outside traditional understandings of journalism.
