CCJ: Committee of Concerned Journalists


Publisher: Committee of Concerned Journalists

The Committee of Concerned Journalists is a consortium of journalists, publishers, owners and academics worried about the future of the profession.To secure journalism's future, the group believes that journalists from all media, geography, rank and generation must be clear about what sets our profession apart from other endeavors. To accomplish this, the group is creating a national conversation among journalists about principles. Update (via the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (University of Missouri) website where the CCJ is archived) After 14 years dedicated to helping an industry in crisis find solutions that are consistent with the enduring values of journalism, the Committee of Concerned Journalists (CCJ) ceased to exist as an operating organization on December 31, 2011. The work and the legacy of CCJ and its members will continue through a variety of means, including in cooperation with the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute, CCJ’s partner for its last six years, through the books and ideas the group inspired, and with the Project for Excellence in Journalism, founded and operated by Tom Rosenstiel, the co-founder of CCJ.
