  • Responsieve diversiteit: een andere kijk op nieuwsdiversiteitGoed functionerende democratieën plaatsen nieuwsdiversiteit centraal. We stellen ter vervanging van reflectieve diversiteit – een proportionele verdeling van opvattingen die voorkomen in de samenleving – responsieve diversiteit voor. Dit concept herpositioneert journalistiek in het spanningsveld tussen nieuwsproductie, waarbij een zo groot mogelijke heterogeniteit wordt nagestreefd, en nieuwsconsumptie, waarbij nieuwsmakers kritisch meedenken met het publiek en het confronteren met afwijkende opvattingen.

Abstract

Responsive diversity: a new look at news diversity

Diversity is one of the key issues in a well-functioning democratic society. However, there are multiple ways to interpret diversity. In this article, we argue that the commonly used interpretation of representative diversity, as reflecting societal diversity, has become obsolete. Therefore, we suggest a renewed approach to news diversity with the notion of responsive diversity. According to this concept, journalists are responsible to incorporate the open diversity standard (i.e., representing all opinions equally in the news content) while at the same time responding to citizens’ concerns by putting information into perspective, and this includes exposure to different viewpoints.
