How The Digital Age Has Affected The Relationship Between Journalists And Their Confidential Sources: An Arizona Perspective

Abstract The rise of digital communication use has affected the relationship between journalists and their confidential sources, especially journalists covering national security. My thesis focuses on analyzing source relationship cultivation in the digital age and how digital communication has changed the way sources and journalists interact, on a national and local level specifically in Arizona. I also look in to Arizona media law following the digital age, how it has changed, and how it affects source relationships. Why Arizona media law protects our state journalists more than the national law protects national journalists is also a topic of discussion.
