For reactions to this report, click here . A merican journalism is at a transformational moment, in which the era of dominant newspapers and influential network news divisions is rapidly giving way to one in which the gathering and distribution of news is more widely dispersed. As almost everyone knows, the economic foundation of the nation’s newspapers, long supported by advertising, is collapsing, and newspapers themselves, which have been the country’s chief source of independent reporting, are shrinking—literally. Fewer journalists are reporting less news in fewer pages, and the hegemony that near-monopoly metropolitan newspapers enjoyed during the last third of the twentieth century, even as their primary audience eroded, is ending. Commercial television news, which was long the chief rival of printed newspapers, has also been losing its audience, its advertising revenue, and its reporting resources.

Here's an image I've been using a lot lately, both for internal training and external presentations such as last week's BPB Forum Lokaljournalismus in Schwerin, Germany. Journalists tend to gravitate to only one of these roles: the town crier, the quaint colonial-era village character who walks around ringing a bell telling you what's happening. It comes naturally. This is why 24x7 coverage teams and the "continuous news desk" concept take root so quickly when newsrooms suddenly awaken to the urgency of taking the Internet seriously. But the other roles aren't secondary. They're coequal, and they're grossly neglected by most local news websites. The three primary roles your local website should play | yelving

Media Convergence in a College Newsroom:
Turning reporters into curators to improve journalism — Zero Per A conversation started this week by Scott Karp and carried forward by Terry Heaton has me thinking about why news organizations are so skittish about linking out from their web sites. It’s as if they think that creating a cul de sac will make readers forget they’ve got a Back button on the browser. And when you layer that conversation onto Chris Anderson’s pith about amateurs noted below, you come to one of my favorite topics: journalists as curators.

End Times V irtually all the predictions about the death of old media have assumed a comfortingly long time frame for the end of print—the moment when, amid a panoply of flashing lights, press conferences, and elegiac reminiscences, the newspaper presses stop rolling and news goes entirely digital.
Over his long business career, Sam Zell has undoubtedly many times smirked at those who have reported failures whilst claiming "It was not my fault". Now, Sam Zell may well be smirking into the mirror. His Chicago Tribune has filed for bankruptcy protection, and Mr. Zell is blaming others (a "perfect storm" economy) for the Chicago Tribune's loss of solvency. It has been barely one year since the new owners took over the Tribune, so it would be unrealistic to expect that they finalized the implementation of whatever concepts they have. Henryk A.
