Surveys the impact of social issues on journalism and the social impact of journalism on society in the digital age. Through readings about journalism and society and case studies, both past and current, of how the news industry operates, students learn about how race, gender, ethics, technology and the changing nature of the news business affect the work of journalists. These issues take on increased importance with the shift to digital technologies for production and distribution.
