He has also published on photojournalism and poverty, normative theories of journalism, British media history and the internet, and discursive constructions of journalism and newswork.

Field/Discipline
I study the process by which journalists determine facts and adjudicate factual controversies. I am also interested in how jouranlists' modes of fact-finding and weighing of evidence compare to other fact-finders in society. In particular, how they compare to social scientists' evidential standards and practices.
