Nicco Mele – In Search of a Business Model: The Future of Journalism in an Age of Social Media and Dramatic Declines in Print Revenue
This podcast deals with creating credible content in journalism in an age of digital content. When revenue is at an all time low but more people are tuning in, creating a new business model through innovation and adapting to the new role of social media will be crucial for journalistic survival.
This podcast talks about telling the stories that are not represented in mainstream media. Using social media to reach people from all kinds diverse backgrounds. Also noting that the up and coming news media outlets that will thrive in the future will be those that are more focused on community.
News Sources of Choice
Choosing the right website to get your news from is important. You can use the New York Times or CNN but sometimes even the big wigs can loose focus and in some rare instances swing bias. Reliable alternative when I find news to be saturated with one point of view.
Huffington Post is the perfect example of the new age of journalism. This is a web only site that offers national and international news. Again, this website should be used as an alternative to the bigger more mainstream news sites. Very left-leaning in commentary but a reliable tool.
