Modern journalism practices as an intellectual activity in the field of basic foundations of civil relations, for which new technologies in the information space are currently the most important, have brought to life the idea of a “digital revolution”. In a result of the researchers’ attempts to understand the new state of the information space, the scientific discourse includes ideas about “digital media” and the acquisition of media / mediatization properties by social / political facts and events. The known ambiguity of these terms gives rise to ambivalence in their interpretation and application. At the same time, ideas about mediatization and mediation as a form of political events / facts allow us to make new steps in understanding modern journalism. The article presents the concept of the political field of journalism, which integrates journalistic and political practices as a special kind of political action within journalism.
