Research firm founder also says traditional papers have not found 'magic bullet' for a digital-only future.
This is a different point of view, one that says digital-only is not the future of traditional newspapers. It is taken from testimony before the Leveson Inquiry Board in Britain, which is the official government investigation into the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal in 2011. The board, chaired by Lord Justice Leveson, will make recommendations on the future of press regulation and governance consistent with maintaining freedom of the press and ensuring the highest ethical and professional standards.
While painting a bleak picture for newspapers, media researcher Claire Enters told the inquiry board that digital newspapers such as The Huffington Post and other blog sites do not represent the future of journalism as they do not fund complex original reporting or investigative reporting. But she says traditional newspapers have not found the "magic bullet" for a digital-only future either.
