This book explores the impact of new forms of online reporting on the BBCa€™s coverage of war and terrorism. Informed by the views of over 100 BBC staff at all levels of the corporation, Bennett captures journalistsa€™ shifting attitudes towards blogs and internet sources used to cover wars and other conflicts. He argues that the BBCa€™s practices and values are fundamentally evolving in response to the challenges of immediate digital publication. Ongoing challenges for journalism in the online media environment are identified: maintaining impartiality in the face of calls for more open personal journalism; ensuring accuracy when the power of the qformer audienceq allows news to break at speed; and overcoming the limits of the scale of the BBCa€™s news operation in order to meet the demands to present news as conversation. While the focus of the book is on the BBCa€™s coverage of war and terrorism, the conclusions are more widely relevant to the evolving practice of journalism at traditional media organizations as they grapple with a revolution in publication.somewhere else, then I Google it and what comes up are blogsa#39;.18 Some journalists have attempted to formulate more ... of RSS feeds said she did not use them because she is part of the a#39;nona€” techy generationa#39;.24 Claire Wardle, who set upanbsp;...
