Are reporters doomed?


The Guardian certainly thinks it’s a possibility. Citizen journalism, hyper-local reporting and other net-driven trends are making investigative journalists an increasingly rare breed. I’m a little conflicted on this, as I’ve got toes dipped in both the old and new media…..but newspapers, television and radio will have to adapt one way or the other.

Warren Frey is a journalist, freelance writer, podcaster, video producer, and all-around media consultant currently based in Vancouver, Canada. His written work has appeared in such publications as Metro Vancouver, the Westender, Mac | Life and the Japan Times.

I am Steven says:

CBC today ran a story about how CanWest Global newswriters are fearing the worst, as well. Two such stories on the same day=writing on the wall.

Come back to TV, Freyburg. It’s your only hope.
