Changing the Fourth Estate: Essays on South African Journalism - Edited by Adrian Hadland

South Africa's media history has been marked by many fine moments in journalism, ranging from the vibrant reporting of the Drum generation, to the bravery of the alternative press during apartheid. Now, a new democracy means new challenges for the media. The publication provides new, young or aspirant journalists with inspirational role models, practical advice and best-practice guidelines. This comes in the form of personal essays by some of South Africa's top journalists and journalism practitioners.


As the publication explains, journalists face many challenges in modern South Africa and quality journalism implies shared responsibility in the building of a better society. In addition, the medium itself is advancing technically and contemporary journalists need to understand the complexity of new platforms for delivering news in a digital age.


At the same time, journalists still need stick to the basics - to be committed to the truth, to producing work of outstanding quality, and to give a voice to the voiceless. All of which amounts to a tough new world for young journalists entering the sector.
