Is European information a specialists’ affair?

Submitted by on March 28, 2011 – 10:28No Comment

The Euro­pean jour­nal­ism is gen­er­ally con­sid­ered as a spe­cial­ity, by those who prac­tice it as by their col­leagues. News­rooms have their Mis­ter Europe.

We don’t dis­pute the use­ful­ness of cor­re­spon­dents’ work, behind the scenes in Brus­sels.Jour­nal­ism on insti­tu­tions and their cogs asks for a con­trol and knowl­edge that only a jour­nal­ist present in Brus­sels for a long time can acquire.

But should the Euro­pean infor­ma­tion, on the Euro­pean poli­cies, stay con­fined in its col­umn? Is Euro­pean level another sort of infor­ma­tion or just an addi­tional key of read­ing of any infor­ma­tion? The jour­nal­ists are used to con­nect local affairs with national poli­cies. The Euro­pean level would be the third stage of a com­plete infor­ma­tion and a skill shared by all the journalists.

What do you think?
