‘Cultural Journalism’ By Daniel Sanderson


An anthology about cultural journalism is a collection of articles, essays, and reports that examine various aspects of culture and its impact on society. It aims to provide a diverse and insightful perspective on the intersection of culture and journalism. The pieces may cover a wide range of topics such as art, music, film, dance, literature, food, fashion, and more. The anthology aims to promote cultural awareness, encourage critical thinking, and provide a platform for underrepresented voices in the media. It is a valuable resource for those interested in cultural journalism, media studies, and the cultural impact of journalism.

Personal Contribution:

Cultural journalism is a vital aspect of the media landscape as it provides insight into the various elements of culture that shape and define our societies. However, in recent years, the news cycle has become increasingly toxic, with sensationalism, misinformation, and fake news dominating the headlines. This toxic news cycle prevents the general public from reconciling truth claims and understanding the true nature of cultural events and issues. The proliferation of fake news and misinformation has led to a culture of distrust and cynicism, with people becoming increasingly skeptical of the media and its role in shaping public opinion. This is particularly problematic in cultural journalism, where the focus is often on subjective and interpretive issues requiring a nuanced and informed understanding of the topic. The toxic news cycle also creates a narrow and homogenized perspective on cultural issues, reducing the diversity of voices and opinions represented in the media. This leads to a lack of understanding of different cultures, which can perpetuate cultural stereotypes and contribute to the cultural divide. The impact of the toxic news cycle on cultural journalism is particularly evident in the way it covers sensitive cultural issues such as race, gender, and sexuality. The media often sensationalizes these topics, creating polarizing narratives that fail to capture the complexity of the issues. This can lead to a misunderstanding of these issues and contribute to the perpetuation of social inequalities. To combat the toxic news cycle and its impact on cultural journalism, it is essential to promote media literacy and critical thinking. The general public must be equipped with the tools to recognize fake news and misinformation and to understand the broader cultural and social context in which cultural events and issues occur. Additionally, media organizations must strive to promote diversity and inclusivity in their reporting, giving voice to various perspectives and experiences. They must also engage in self-reflection, examining their biases and ensuring that their reporting is grounded in accurate factual information. In conclusion, the toxic news cycle hurts cultural journalism and the general public’s ability to reconcile truth claims. It is essential to promote media literacy and critical thinking and to encourage media organizations to promote diversity and inclusivity in their reporting. By doing so, we can ensure that cultural journalism provides a nuanced and informed understanding of the cultural issues that shape our world.
