JOSHUA FRIEDMAN’S LECTURE IN BRATISLAVA

'Journalism is becoming a more challenging career' (video included)

THE NATURE of journalism has changed tremendously over the time that Joshua Friedman, an American journalist, Pulitzer Prize laureate and teacher at one of the best journalism schools in the world at Columbia University, has been active in the profession.

THE NATURE of journalism has changed tremendously over the time that Joshua Friedman, an American journalist, Pulitzer Prize laureate and teacher at one of the best journalism schools in the world at Columbia University, has been active in the profession.

As a reporter, Friedman saw conditions deteriorate for foreign correspondents working in the USA’s biggest media outlets: year by year, the economic basis of the journalists’ work fell. On the other hand, significant technological changes have made the work of journalists around the world easier in many ways. Joshua Friedman witnessed this process of change, covering big stories from different parts of the globe. Today he believes that the declining expenditure on foreign correspondents and the subsequent lower quality of international reporting has negatively affected public opinion in the US on essential issues including the war in Iraq.

These were some of the topics Joshua Friedman touched on in his lecture on November 15 in Bratislava, an event organised by Petit Academy, the Tatra Banka Foundation, the Comenius University and The Slovak Spectator.
