How the Smartphone Ushered In a Golden Age of Journalism | WIRED | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it

The smartphone promises a new golden age of journalism.


...Journalism, however, is holding its own. Statistics from the Times say roughly half of the people who read it now do so with their mobile devices, and that jibes with figures from the latest Pew report on the news media broadly.
