Business journalism is the activity of collecting and presenting news and commentary concerned with business and economy. Business journalism has no universal definition, and the term tends to be used interchangeably with economic journalism and financial journalism, although the former is often conceived as a more encompassing term while the latter signals a narrower definition of the field. The development of business journalism is closely connected to the development of a business press (i.e., newspapers and periodicals serving distinct business audiences), but recently business journalism has also come to play an important role in all-round oriented mass media.
