About this title: In the framework of increasing (not least public) discussion on the quality of journalistic activity, the perennially controversial issue of objectivity/impartiality in journalism has become even more of a bone of contention than it was before. With its analysis of the tradition of impartiality in German journalism, this book opens up a new, hitherto neglected perspective on this problem. This perspective is not only exciting in itself, it also proves to be exceedingly productive and relevant, both for scholarly engagement with the journalism phenomenon and for journalistic practice itself. Readers are also informed about what one can legitimately expect of journalism.
