Slow journalism is a news subculture borne out of the frustration at the quality of journalism from the mainstream press. A continuation from the larger "slow" movement, slow journalism shares the same values as other "slow"-movement subsets in its efforts to produce a good, clean and fair product.[1] Specialist titles have emerged around the world and proclaim to be antidotes to a mainstream media that is "filled to the brim with reprinted press releases, kneejerk punditry, advertorial nonsense and 'churnalism'".[2]
