Understanding Journalism Journalism is an exciting profession and a vital service to the community and the nation. Most people rely on what journalists write or broadcast for an understanding of the society in which they live and work, and this means that journalists face real responsibilities and challenges. Their role is varied – it can be to entertain or educate as well as to inform the public. Good journalism is also essential if society is to function properly, if democratic values are to be protected, if people are to be made aware of their rights, and if the powerful in society are to be accountable to the wider public. It offers scope for people with widely differing interests: current affairs, sport, culture and production journalism (layout, sub-editing and design) among others.
