News Carriers

  • Newspapers: Topic Page
    Publication issued periodically, usually daily or weekly, to convey information and opinion about current events.
  • News agency: Topic Page
    Local, national, international, or technical organization that gathers and distributes news, usually for newspapers, periodicals, and broadcasters.
  • Magazine: Topic Page
    Publication brought out periodically, typically containing articles, essays, short stories, reviews, and illustrations. It is thought that the first magazine was Le Journal des savants, published in France in 1665. The first magazine in the UK was a penny weekly, the Athenian Gazette, better known later as the Athenian Mercury (1690-97).
  • Broadsheet and tabloid
    From The Hutchinson Unabridged Encyclopedia with Atlas and Weather Guide
    Even though both tabloids and broadsheets are newspapers, they do not have the same content. Importantly, if both styles of newspaper report on the same news event, they are likely to choose a different angle, or emphasize different features of the story. In short, the content and style of broadsheets and tabloids are as different as their physical layout.

Roles

  • Editor
    From Key Concepts in Journalism Studies
    The life of a newspaper editor can be a chequered one. At its best, it is a prestigious and highly-paid job with responsibility for a publication which may have millions of readers and involves a social life mixing with celebrities and politicians. At its worst, the position is high-pressured and a continuous battle trying to strike a fine balance between the editorial and commercial elements, while being personally accountable for legal problems which may lead to imprisonment.
  • Journalist
    From Key Concepts in Journalism Studies
    Muck-raking scumbag or noble seeker after truth? Journalism seems to accommodate both stereotypes with the same ease it embraces lurid allegations of the latest celebrity infidelity alongside exposure of serious institutional or individual wrongdoing or serious political and social analysis.
  • Columnist
    From Key Concepts in Journalism Studies
    ‘Great columnists make the difference great sauces make’, claims Bernard Shrimsley (2003: 23) in reference to those writers who assume personalities, sometimes fictitious, to opine to an audience to whom they appear familiar and friendly (Silvester, 1997: xi).
