Ubiquitous news, global information access, instantaneous reporting, interactivity, multimedia content, extreme customization: Journalism is undergoing the most fundamental transformation since the rise of the penny press in the nineteenth century. Here is a report from the front lines on the impact and implications for journalists and the public alike. John Pavlik, executive director of the Center for New Media at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, argues that the new media can revitalize news gathering and reengage an increasingly distrustful and alienated citizenry. The book is a valuable reference on everything from organizing a new age newsroom to job hunting in the new media.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Pavlik, a journalism professor, offers a comprehensive look at "the convergence of telecommunications, computing and traditional media." Pavlik sees new technology transforming journalism in fundamental ways not seen since the invention of the printing press. He details technical changes, including the digital newsroom, and cultural changes, including providing readers with more in-depth background material and allowing greater reader interactivity. Pavlik outlines the challenges of new technology, from credibility issues to the blurring of the line between news and advertising. He points to the distinguishing qualities of emerging trends in journalism enhanced by new technology: ubiquitous and instantaneous news, global information access, interactivity, and customization. The popularity and wide use of the Internet as an information source as well as technological advancements in the delivery of video and audio have transformed the relationships between news organizations, journalists, the public, advertisers, and regulators. This is an absorbing and highly informative look at how news gathering is changing, and it will appeal to journalists and journalism students as well as news readers and watchers. --Vanessa Bush"
