Memaknai Ulang Obyektivitas dalam Media Massa (Sebuah Apresiasi pada Praktik Jurnalisme Subyektif)
Objectivity has become the basis for the practice of contemporary journalism. Objectivity has become
a major issue during the last century. However, the ethical debate about objectivity was never
finished. Even the debate that starts from the definition of objectivity itself, the criteria, until the
question of pessimism, is it possible there is objectivity in this world? Along with the increasing
number of criticisms of objective journalism, the idea of subjective journalism increasingly widely
accepted. Subjective journalism often simply interpreted as journalism in context. That is, journalists
do not merely present the facts, but also presents the meaning. This paper tries to elaborate
the notion of subjective journalism and explore its relevance in contemporary journalism.
