Multimedia journalism - ruining journalism itself?

Multimedia surely effects journalism, but for the better or worse?


  1. Multimedia and journalism do work together to aid the flow of information, however this information is often subject to suspect validity and accuracy. Any member of the public can pick up their phone and write a rumour that has as much facial validity as any professional piece, if written well. 
  2. Pepe Reina is attracting interest from three European clubs, according to reports. #TransferTalk #Liverpool...
  3. Whilst most people who have an avid interest in the given topic will have their favourite and reliable sources, those new to a field will have a tendency to believe anything laid before them, and in the increasingly globalized world of multimedia, these stories are becoming more and more convincing. Sensationalized stories build off the smallest of tidbits and form the biggest of upcoming news events, such as people spotted in suspicious places regarding their futures - at football clubs, police stations or snapped in undesirable PR situations. 
  4. Fans are able to access the private lives of their favourite celebrities which opens up a whole new world of journalistic reporting which has the tendency to encroach upon the privacy of individuals and frequently follow with law suits. 
  5. Rumours are exactly that, and thus the emerging trend of multimedia in journalism may increase the risk of invalid and inaccurate information, however the accurate and valid information does hold itself in a thorough and informative light by which it is able to inform its audience on a deeper level.
