RT @katierogers: No. Next question. // Is social media destroying good journalism?
Blogger Lauren Arthur says the mood was ominous about the future of journalism as we know it during an event at the London School of Journalism "Many of us have failed to register that the rise of social networks and other online news sources will inevitably lead to a dramatic decline in print publications."
I don't believe that Arthur presented convincing evidence that newspapers are doomed, but she did pose an interesting question: “Should we be lamenting the decline of print any more than we did the decline of vinyl, or the VCR? Hopefully not, if all we’re lamenting is the loss of print itself, rather than the quality journalism it’s associated with."
