Future of jazz journalism, too?

May 29th, 2011 | By

According to Chloe Veltman, the Knight Journalism Fellows journalists speechifying at Stanford University believe the future of journalism is a form of social justice, engaging non-journalist citizens in telling “stories about individuals or groups who they feel often under-represented in the mainstream media.” Does that represent the basis of jazz journalism, almost from its start?

Aren’t “jazz journalists” mostly listeners, trained in journalism and media or not, who are eager to bring news about music under-represented in mainstream media to wider audiences? Discuss, if you like, in comments below.
