Professional journalists should excel others by adding values to news, says Thomson Reuters China Chairman

27th March 2012

Everyone can be a reporter and professional journalists should differentiate themselves from civic reporters by adding values to news, according to Thomson Reuters China Chairman David Schlesinger.

Schlesinger believes that the research done by LinkedIn, which sates the newspaper industry shrunk by 28.4% in the past five years and is the fastest shrinking industry in the United States, is to indication that journalism profession around the world is not very healthy.

He urged journalism undergraduates and young journalists to rethink their image of the industry and be prepared to confront the upcoming challenges.

“There are all kinds of new journalism out there. Twitter, Weibo, Facebook etc. All these are new channels and there are numerous people, who have the right to call themselves journalists, competing with professional journalists in the marketplace. Professionals need to differentiate themselves from civic reporters and add value to themselves,” said Schlesinger.

Schlesinger pointed out that professional journalists should always keep in mind three fundamental things: journalistic ethics and disciplines, professional skills and the nobility of journalism. He believes that these are some keys that sets apart a real professional journalist from civic reporters.

“Journalists are no longer the master of facts, they lost their control of facts,” said Schlesinger. He further explained, “journalists are no longer the first one to report on breaking news, witnesses at the scene do the reporting instead by uploading text and photos to the internet. Therefore, journalists need to do more in order to surpass others.”

Schlesinger continued, “journalists have to do more. They have to analyse and have to be able to add value to news.” He pointed out that journalists should focus on speed, exclusivity, style, ubiquity and expertise while reporting in order to uphold their professionalism.
