Journalism is a discipline of gathering, writing and reporting news, and broadly it includes the process of editing and presenting the news articles. Journalism applies to various media, but not limited to newspapers, magazines, radio, and television.

While under pressure to be the first to publish their stories, news media organizations each adhere to its own standards of accuracy, quality, and style - usually editing and proofreading their reports prior to publication. Many news organizations claim proud traditions of holding government officials and institutions accountable to the public, while media critics have raised questions on the press accountability itself.
