Charlie Beckett: Emotion as an organising principle for networked journalism | LSE BLOGS

‘Emotions are going to become more important for news in the networked era, that is inevitable, the choice for journalists (and the public) is how they respond.’

IN A SPEECH AT NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY, Charlie Beckett says emotion, used constructively, can contribute to a further reinvention of journalism. He argues ‘the reason/emotion binary is a false dichotomy.’

Beckett is a professor at the London School of Economics, Director of Polis, the Media Policy Project and the LSE Truth, Trust & Technology Commission. He also is author of SuperMedia: Saving Journalism So It Can Save The World and WikiLeaks: News In The Networked Era.
