How Supporting Us Helps

Why is independent journalism important?

Today more than ever, independent journalism plays a fundamental role in creating and maintaining healthy, democratic societies. So much information is now available, and so much of it is—intentionally or not—untruthful, that journalism has to strengthen its role as the professional verifier, explainer, and contextualizer. With deception ubiquitous in the digital era, journalism must be free to bark at power when it is abusive or corrupt, and to uncover activities that have been hidden or distorted by governments or corporations.

How can independent journalism make an impact on society?

For journalism to be influential in the digital era, its information gathering, production, and distribution processes must be transparent. Openness earns trust and engagement and allows journalists to moderate conversations—inside or outside a given medium—feeding those conversations with quality news and stories delivered in an appealing way on multiple platforms, anytime, anywhere. When journalism plays this new role in society, its impact can be phenomenal. Where diverse, independent media can engage the public and thrive, the quality of public debate is better, and the more open a society is likely to become.

How can independent journalism benefit citizens?

Independent, ethical journalism helps citizens understand society’s problems and develop meaningful solutions. Investigative reporting is critical to increasing public awareness and engagement, and provides a much-needed platform for voices that are under-represented in traditional media.

What is a Photojournalist?

Photojournalists, also referred to as news photographers, use still photography and other digital media in creating newsworthy stories for the public.

Photojournalists should be creative while possessing solid technical knowledge in the field of photography. In addition to still photography, photojournalists are often responsible for delivering information by using various social media outlets across the Internet.

A photojournalist might work with multimedia, such as video, sound and digital media.

What is a Reporters Goal?

A reporter’s goal is to provide an accurate story that the public can easily understand. When a reporter receives an assignment, they perform research to learn the facts of the story. This can involve arranging interviews with people associated with the event, such as witnesses or experts, and fact checking.

Stories are assembled according to the media platform they’re presented on, and Delaware Newsline may require reporters to present the stories on more than one platform. As a reporter, you may specialize in a certain field, such as education or the environment, or take on general assignments on a range of subjects.
