The concept of public journalism has evolved only within the last five years, but already it has made an impact on journalist and scholars alike. Public journalism is a movement within newspapers that is trying to reconnect citizens with their newspapers, communities and political life. Public journalism is also a theory that encourages journalist to break from the conventional idea of detachment and show concern for whether public life is good.
