Leaving the past and embracing the future: The new face of journalism.



A new investigative reporting web site was launched by Regina Holmes in Baltimore a few weeks ago. Mrs. Holmes was a recent assistant managing editor at the Baltimore Examiner before it went belly up. With the down fall of major newspapers many journalists are doing their own thing. Is it just possible that Holmes is ahead of the game? Is this the “new” journalism?

While there's nothing wrong with online editions, I don't even think 5 years ago when I was in college that people in the Mass Comm department would have been prepared for the demise of a big city daily.

I know readership has gone down anyway, but to have this happen kinda sucks. Hopefully that reporter will still be able to make the monthly bills.

How are mass comm dep'ts changing their curriculum to accommodate the new trends in technology?

Folks,

The model for teaching journalism has been the same for decades. The internet just starting being added to the mix. I don't even think they know what to do or how to do it.
