What is living and dying in the digital journalism era:
“The internet is no more killing journalism than home taping killed music. The internet is changing journalism, which is frightening for traditional hacks. … The internet combined with the iPad has actually rejuvenated journalism in many ways. … There is now a movement in support of long-form articles. Look at Longform.org and continuing growth in the use of apps such as Instapaper. Additionally, services such as Byliner and Amazon’s ‘Singles’ line are getting writers paid for [both] journalism and comment that are up to the standard of anything that emerged in the ‘golden years’ of twentieth century newspaper journalism.
When people … crow that the internet is kicking the hell out of journalism it is in part because their traditional platforms are crumbling. … If any part of journalism is dying, it’s the part that believes it has an inherent right to live.”
