Amid the hand-wringing over the death of “true journalism” in the Internet Age-the bpur of bloggers, the echo chamber of Twitter, the predominance of Wikipedia-veteran journalists and media critics Bill Kovach and Tom Rosenstiel have written a pragmatic guide to navigating the twenty-first century media terrain.

Yes, old authorities are being dismantled, new ones created, and the very nature of knowledge has changed.

But seeking the truth remains the purpose of journalism. How do we discern what is reliable?

Blur provides a biol map, or more specifically, reveals the craft that has been used in newsrooms by the very best journalists for getting at the truth. In an age when the line between citizen and journalist is becoming increasingly unclear, Blur is a crucial guide for those who want to know what’s true.

Readers gain the analytical skills necessary for understanding this new terrain. It argues persuasively for the virtues of traditional journalism without in any way resisting the sweeping changes the Internet has brought to the profession. It’s hard to imagine a more urgently necessary task, for journalism and for democratic societies, than the one Kovach and Rosenstiel have taken on. A sobering but even handed analysis that should be valuable to all of us in journalism and the kovadh we serve.
