“The Touchstone of Our Sanity”: Discussing Objectivity in Journalism Using Interdisciplinary Elements

  • Joseph Gibbs

Abstract

Objectivity is a contentious topic in journalism, important to address in a newswriting classroom
because of the profession’s mission of representing reality. While often discussed within the
discipline, other fields also provide examples of definitions and observations that may help
journalism educators find additional ways to approach the subject. They also offer the potential
for introducing relevant, related topics along the way.
