Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the trends in public journalism in relation to civil society. It highlights the emergence of a new investigative journalism ecosystem, in which some of the most ambitious reporting projects will increasingly emanate from the public realm rather than from private, commercial outlets. It suggests that under this set up, the journalist will have more editorial freedom and the public will benefit from the supply of independent, in-depth journalism that would not otherwise exist, in multimedia and infinitely more accessible forms.

Keywords: public journalism, civil society, investigative journalism, public realm, editorial freedom, in-depth journalism
