the implicit norm of working long hours in entrepreneurial journalism

Journalism is a profession in which many different norms and activities converge. A major influence forms the implicit norm of long working hours, which many journalists consider to be a defining feature of journalism. Combining auto-ethnography with interviews with entrepreneurial journalists worldwide, this chapter discusses how this implicit norm is experienced in the everyday practice of entrepreneurial journalism.
