Another about how journalism has changed

December 12, 2011 ckeeter1

The advent of the internet has definitely changed journalism and how it operates as a business. The way people used to sale things was to put them beside something in the newspaper, their “new religion” now is to put them up on the internet. All of the big institutions question how they are going to go on, and some newspapers have even shut down.  Paul Barrett’s  first journalism job had typewriters, now we have computers.

Print journalism has changed over the years, so has the role of a journalist and might be drags on a journalistic career.

-Losser concept of what makes news

-Broadened definition of scandal, and its not always bad

-Fame whoring

-Reduced influence

-Layoffs and budget  cuts

-Smaller readership

Journalism has to be networked now to make a case. It is the “Age of  Complexity.” New media techniques aren’t conquering previous platforms, they are simply adding to them.
