Journalism Research

The question is, What would be the socio-political impact of fewer trained journalists in the UK?

This is my research to try and answer this question.

A research in 2013 said that less than 14% of the world lived in countries that have a completely free press according to Global Investigative Journalism Network, it is said that a country with a free press have a better democracy and more economic stability.

The Leveson Report certainly had a major effect on press freedom in the UK and, along with this, I believe fewer trained journalists here can only have a bad impact on our society.

In the 2013 report it said, after the publication of the Leveson Report in November 2012, that the UK has a totally free press, I believe this could cause major talking points when it comes to the definition of a free press and, therefore, the impact of fewer journalists here.
