New Journalism

Wikis > New Journalism

The term “new Journalism” was famously used by critic Matthew Arnold in a magazine article, “Up to Easter,” published in The Nineteenth Century magazine (1887). For Arnold and like-minded critics, the “new journalism” of the fin de si├Ęcle represented the “dummying down” of intellectual content in favour of sensational, brief, news items that took second place to visual materials in a bid to reach a new mass readership.
