Journalism In Good Faith Issues And Practices In Religion Reporting
How will journalists ethically cover issues of faith and things unseen when they are generally trained to report facts and opinions that are verifiable, events that are seen and issues substantiated by evidence? What are the constraints and opportunities for developing best practices in religion reporting in the commercial media? How can journalists help to bridge the divide between and within faith groups through the stories they tell? All these questions and more are addressed in this book that covers various aspects of religion reporting. Journalism in Good Faith provides journalists, faith-based organisations and students of journalism with a broad framework to help them explore how religion and faith issues can be better treated through fair and open-minded journalism. A chapter on online resources available for reference on the various religions and on religion reporting is also provided.
