dc.description.abstractPeople use media to inform their lives. It is no wonder then that journalists find it necessary to champion the objective and balanced nature of their work. Their work serves as the base of public knowledge. Increasingly, however, scholars are examining the forces that affect news production in an attempt to redefine a new kind of civic journalism. Scholars like, Rosen (1996) are recognizing that journalists are people, whose age, gender, race, religion and life experiences determine the way news is created. If news media were reconceptualized and journalists were encouraged to approach and practice their craft differently, news media could be revolutionized and could help fuel democratic change. This thesis is a look at a young journalist grappling with social forces and their impact on her professional life. It is a look at how civic journalism can work when the personal is explored as a site of knowledge.
