The Future of Journalism

Highly recommended
I'm reminded of the C&W song, 'Mama, Don't Let Your Sons Grow up to be Cowboys'. Don't let them grow up to be journalists, either.

This radio forum on the demise of print media, radio and TV, and the rise of the Internet (but with less employment for journalists and writers) is important listening, albeit scary for those who have tried to build a career with scribbling.

"The Brookings Institution forecasts that in coming months, about 11 American cities will be left without newspapers. So what's the state of play here in Australia? Should we envisage altogether new models to ensure that mass, quality journalism remains viable? Or is this alarmist?"
