Senior roles are usually as editors or producers, who co-ordinate the work of other journalists. There are also freelance journalists, who usually write as columnists and commentators on areas they have expertise in, and often work part-time alongside other jobs. The industry is currently undergoing a major transformation due to the decline of traditional media like print, radio and television and the rapid increase in news content distributed through digital media.
The day to day activities of journalists vary by industry, role and level of seniority but almost all journalists spend time researching stories and interviewing people, preparing content for publication and staying up to date with the area they cover. Here are the typical days for several types of journalist:. Most people agree that journalists serve an important function — providing reliable information and analysis to the public so that individuals and institutions can make better informed decisions.
The potential value of the profession is to provide a public good — a comprehensive and constantly updated account of world events which serves as an independent monitor of power, is a forum for public discussion, keeps the significant interesting and relevant and gives voice to a diverse range of perspectives and demographics. However, there are parts of journalism which do not contribute to the social function of journalism very much, and may even be harmful see e. It is also unclear how much impact a marginal journalist has.
Our guess is that it would be better if there were more able and altruistic people in the industry, especially if they use their position to promote effective causes, which we discuss next. Journalism provides the opportunity to promote effective causes to a wide audience and bring attention to neglected problems.
The potential for this is increasing due to a recent resurgence in advocacy and point of view journalism 3 and the audience you can reach is very large. An important counterpoint to this is that for much of journalism the incentives strongly favour publishing stories which get a lot of views because this is what drives advertising revenue and is core to the business model of most news organisations. However, our impression is that in spite of this, many journalists still have considerable discretion in what they write about, though they may need to spend several years to get to this position.
Journalists who work for non-profits , such as ProPublica or publicly funded organisations like NPR and the BBC, get more freedom to write about important issues due to the smaller role that market pressures play in these organisations. And even within for-profit journalism, there are many examples of journalists being able to write about important causes. One example is Vox journalist Dylan Matthews who often writes about basic income , immigration policy and effective giving. Due to the rise of online publications it is becoming easier to get published, which opens up the opportunity to pursue advocacy journalism part-time, as a freelancer alongside another job that pays the bills.
We know of several people who are successfully pursuing this option. If you can get reliable freelance work, you get more freedom to choose which topics you write about and you have more flexibility over when and where you work. Full-time paid positions in journalism are highly competitive due to the large number of people who want them and the shrinking number of positions.
