Q: Do you think that the ethical codes of journalism have changed in the transition from traditional journalism to digital?


A: We think the ethics of journalism have changed, yes, for a range of reasons, and in both negative and positive ways. For example, transparency has become much more highly valued as a journalistic value: journalists are expected to earn the trust of readers much more than was previously the case, and we would argue that is a positive development. Linking to sources, sharing methodologies, etc. forces journalists to hold themselves to higher standards.

 

Q: How do you think the role of journalists has changed during the 21st century, especially with the data explosion and the rise of misinformation and disinformation?


A: Journalists and news organisations have both been forced to adapt by the increased competition, and the changing nature of the world that we report on (i.e. the fact that it is more data-driven) Many publishers tell us they want to give their journalists data skills because they feel that they need to ‘up their game’ in order to compete with new entrants to the sector, and to create distinctive content in an environment where celebrities, politicians, sportspeople etc. all publish direct to audiences rather than via media.

Q: Do you let your columnists say anything they like?

A: We naturally take full, editorial responsibility for any journalistic material that appears in our newspapers or online and every article goes through an editing process. But when it comes to comment or opinion pieces, we obviously want our columnists to express their personal opinions, even if their views are at odds with the ‘editorial line’ of the paper (as set out in the leader column each day). Sometimes, we are aware that columnists will set out opinions which are controversial, divisive or provocative and that some people may be offended as a result. It is naturally a matter of regret that anybody should be upset or offended by something they read in our titles but, in the final analysis, we would prefer that our writers should occasionally provoke such.
