Cand. nysgerrig - En analyse af journalistisk som mulighed og virkelighed

Nikolaj Bak Sørensen

Studenteropgave: Speciale


In this thesis I examine the possibilities and challenges for modern Danish journalism. The inquiry is conducted in two parts, the first part is a philosophical analysis of the conditions for the construction of a journalistic ethos. The second part utilizes concepts derived in the philosophical analyses, to analyse six interviews with young journalists from Roskilde University, about their path into the profession and their views of the values and ideals of the profession. I conclude that the journalistic ethos can be understood as located in a dynamic locus between ideal, practice and subjective interpretation, and that the young journalists on the one hand seizes and reproduces the way that practice is currently conducted, but one the other hand also, albeit silently, protest the defining ideals of practice and separate certain parts of their identity from their identity as journalists.
