Abstract

Journalism cannot be divorced from the business and ownership structures within which it is housed, just as the media are an inseparable part of a broader socio-political environment. Yet little attention is paid to ensuring that those structures are capable of nurturing the journalism necessary to sustain that environment. This book set out to determine whether trusts and trust-like stewardship are capable of providing a sustaining framework within an industry that is struggling to find alternatives to a flawed business model. The normative qualities of most kinds of trustee stewardship are inherently positive, so this exercise has been an appraisal, based on a number of cases, of the practical application of that form of governance in an industry with fluctuating fortunes and strong personalities.
