Business journalism includes coverage of companies, the workplace, personal finance, and economics, including unemployment and other economic indicators.
Business coverage gained prominence in the 1990s, with wider investment in the stock market. In the early 2000s, much attention was given to coverage of real or alleged fraud by executives.
The Wall Street Journal focuses on business and is one of the top newspapers in the United States, in both circulation and respect of journalists. Bloomberg is an American wire service that emphasizes business coverage.
Business-to-business or trade magazines each cover a specific industry, market or job function. For example, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter are both business-to-business magazines covering the entertainment industry. Some business-to-business magazines make money from both subscriptions and advertising, but most are distributed free and depend entirely on advertising revenue.
