Meier, Klaus:
TRANSPARENCY IN JOURNALISM. Credibility and trustworthiness in the digital future.
Veranstaltung: Conference „The Future of Journalism“, 9.-10. September 2009, University Cardiff.
(Veranstaltungsbeitrag: Kongress/Konferenz/Symposium/Tagung, Paper)



Although transparency has long been regarded as a criterion for journalistic quality, it has a significantly greater potential in the Internet, which is something that causes uncertainty in journalistic practice and in the theory of journalism. This paper analyses different understandings and instruments of transparency — understood as an openness that journalists and newsrooms can themselves produce towards their audience. The basis for this is a transparency framework as well as case studies in different countries and media systems. The traditional ombudsman, for instance, is confronted with the potential of the “transparent newsroom” on the Internet with webcasts of conferences, editorial blogs and social networking. The transparency instruments are categorised in a three-dimensional matrix model: traditional or digital approach — one-way or interactive communication — openness in the journalistic product or in the journalistic process. The greatest challenge is to lay open the journalistic processes. If a newsroom agrees to adopt this approach, it must inevitably turn the spotlight on itself: self-coverage complements the usual news coverage. Objectivity and impartiality are no quality criteria for self-coverage. Instead, it is more a case of demonstrating trustworthiness by self-reflection and developing a relationship with the audience.
