Does the internet make journalism better or worse?
The news industry is just one of many industries being dramatically altered by the internet. This particularly affects the shrinking numbers of newspaper corporations, who arguably go into more depth as compared to other medium of news. It can also encourage reporters and journalists to rush their work, or even report false information, to be the first one to distribute information or get the most site traffic.
At the same time, the internet enables greater participation from readers and makes it possible to get an article out to more people than ever before. This offers journalists new and better ways to do their jobs. It also allows for less-well-known journalists to get their articles and opinions out.
So what do you guys think?
