|Would you say the journalism blog is revolutionizing the profession?
It already has but the internet is also allowing people who can't necessarily write put up their ill-considered work online
No but the internet is. I can search the history of a story in seconds and also source images in a matter of minutes.
To a certain extend, I believe it is ruining it. You no longer need training or experience to be a journalism.
I think it is in that it provides a space for journalists to provide additional insight to readers that might not always fit in the confines of the space allotted in print or broadcast segments.
Most of all, I think it shifts the mindset of how journalists operate, at its best. The fundamental benefit of social media is the "social" part and the ability to share information and connect with others easily in a different format is the biggest benefit of the blog.
But ultimately, good writing is good writing and even with a new medium and mindset, standards for quality content should not have changed much.
I would say that journalism blogs are giving a bigger human touch to the journalists and bringing them even closer to the readers. This is important since I believe journalists should meet more people in order to serve the truth better!
it is revolutionizing the economics of scarcity
Not revolutionizing the profession - more like muddling it. Everyone thinks if they can string two sentences together they're a journalist. Not so.
Journalists who do blog usually use the medium for self-expression. Again, not news.
No,it means that some very untalented and poor writers get their chance to clog up the Internet. One or two escape the banality, but they are few and far between.
The profession has changed constantly ever since I've been in it. Plus ca change, plus c'est le meme chose!
Yes. It's hard to imagine the world pre-journalism blog. It was lively, but it was different, and now it is gone.
Tough to say. It has to be cleaned up a bit first. Blogs are spreading a lot of misinformation - the opposite of journalism.
Yes, to some extent.
Journalists who write blogs just want to express their own opinions a little more, if they are constrained by who they wok for...but it can be dangerous for them. For the readers, I don't know? We all have our favourites, and we choose to read or not. I don't think it's revolutionising it.
Yes it is, but there will always be a place for professionals
It has changed the face of reporting. Everyone and anyone has a voice, but for how long? The internet will soon be controlled which I think will disallow this.
