Article / Academic Research on Proffesional Attitudes of Journalists: A Description of the Status Quaestionis

Abstract /

Research in professional attitudes of journalists has tried to typify, under a normative conception of the press, different roles of the journalist. Typologies suggested by scholars imply the classic principle of objectivity along with the notion of the journalist as mirror of reality. Under this approach, questions such as what the influences on professional attitudes are, or how professional attitudes affect the actual news contents, do not get full answers. After reviewing the evolution of the research, the article suggests the symbolic perspective as one under which the notion of the journalist as mediator better deals with the interaction between professional attitudes, contents and audiences.
