Abstract.

In this paper we are particularly interested in exploring the factors influencing the exercise of news judgment, new kinds of group-forming, and the level of credibility and trustworthiness of mass media. Sheridan Burns holds that critical reflection is an active commitment in journalists to scrutinize their own actions, exposing the processes and underlying values in their work while they are doing it. Shirky holds that the old limitations of media have been radically reduced. Baym writes that CMC involves participants who are often temporally separated and do not share physical co-presence. pp. 131–140
