Potential 'list of political journalists'[edit]

Thanks for self-reverting, but in relation to your recent additions suggesting that a more comprehensive "List of political journalists" be created, TakuyaMurata, I do see potential for this as one of the Lists of journalists. As it stands, there are a number of 'lists' that strike me as WP:OTHERSTUFF, whereas a list of political journalists is quite straightforward per WP:RS (there are plenty of sources that describe certain journalists as being 'political journalists'), and the WP:TITLE is relevant per WP:COMMONNAME. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 03:28, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, It would be great to add how the media affects politics in the electoral journalism subset. It is relevant towards how campaigns are affected. ~Ahernandez1597 }} —Preceding undated comment added 04:32, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Unsourced[edit]

There is only one reference regarding electoral journalism. Xx236 (talk) 06:21, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

I've never encountered "Election journalism/electoral journalism", or "Defense journalism"/military journalism" as 'in the real world' terminology, and I haven't found any scholarly material on the subjects. These 'subsets' smack of being neologisms used for marketing courses. "Diploma in Political and Electoral Journalism" sounds remarkably like "Political journalism". In fact, the source cited essentially argues that there is "little" in the way of such courses available. Either they're recognised far more universally, or it's WP:OR. Without better and more convincing sources, I really think these 'subsections' need to go. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 09:16, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
There exists page Military journalism (USA only).Xx236 (talk) 09:43, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
That article is terrible. No wonder it's been tagged for multiple problems. Aside from that, by its definition, it isn't related to the Fourth Estate, Fifth Estate, or 5th Column forms of journalism this article should be covering per WP:TITLE. From my reading of that article, it's a form of recording/training to record events within the confines of a sovereign state's defence force, making it a functionary of a branch of official nation-state reportage, and serving a very different function to independent reportage and freedom of the press issues. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 23:48, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
