Being journalist in digital environment

Since the very first newspaper publications online in the late 90s, medias have adapted themselves to the new media scene. Their arrival on the Internet and on the Web is marked by several major evolutions, as such as the new writing forms (hypertext, video, webdocumentary, microblogging) coming with the emerging practices of information consumption. More significant, phenomena like newspapers Google indexing, Google News editorialization, and, since 2010, their massive circulation, more and more fragmented through social networks or, more recently, their integration and personalization in the Facebook newsfeed have defined a new environment, redistributing power balances and authority, that used to be held by newspaper. The actual controverse about fake-news and fact-checking websites is, in this capacity, revealing a crise of editorialization, that this seminar session aim to interrogate, examining the different strategies implemented by different actors to negotiate this transition.
