Media The New Journalism
posted by December 5 at 12:30 PMon
I know I’m one day late on this, but yesterday’s Washington Post brought an interesting vision of the future of journalism.
It’s a vision being pushed by the Gannett newspaper chain, and it involves spending a lot of time in your car, laptop computer plugged into cigarette lighter, writing about community news — like, say, the local chamber of commerce’s new fundraising calendar.
Does a company even need trained journalists for such an enterprise? It’s a question Reuters is now asking in a slightly different context. In their opinion, anyone can be a photojournalist.
