Journalism, an evolving collective

by Nathalie Dollé

If obtaining the status of journalist has been a long struggle, this profession has finally won its legitimacy, and even a highly respected position. Was the team, which quickly became the editorial staff, a community from the beginning or only a group of individuals ?

As a various and fluctuating profession, journalism has continued to change throughout its history. Today, new mutations have arisen; as the heart of these media enterprises changes into bi-media newsrooms, what happens with the individual and the collective?

Nathalie Dollé presents, at the end of her book, her personal hypothesis: the collective of journalists is not fading, it is restructuring and adjusting itself and may be strengthened if it can take into account its fundamental ethical and professional rules.
