Le travail de couverture des faits divers dans les médias d’information au Japon : regard sur la légitimité en déclin d’une spécialité journalistique

Abstract : Generally considered as the “weaker sister” of the journalistic world in Western countries, city-news journalism (shakaibu jānarizum) is seen in Japan as one of the most recognized specialties. The aim of this article is to describe the role played by the reporting of accidents and criminal affairs within Japanese newspaper and television journalism. This legitimacy is related to the growing distance taken by news organizations from opinion and political debate throughout the 20th century. Even now, the coverage of local police stations remains the standard professional training for the majority of young journalists in both newspapers and television companies. The practices and the specific division of labor used for criminal news reporting have also an impact on other journalistic fields which strengthens this legitimacy. However, under the influence of a distancing audience and the digitalization of news, the recent transformations of media industries participate to changing the role played so far by the shakaibu jānarizumu. Moreover, this evolution is linked to broader issues such as the debate regarding labor conditions and the feminization of the labor market which both contribute to a call into question of this specialty.
