Media Studies

I am writing an essay for my media studies class on the topic; Has digital technology made professional journalists obsolete? What is the role of journalism in a digital society?

Can anyone give me ideas for arguments I can come up with or evidence.


  • Media Studies -

    Good heavens! I hope professional journalists aren't obsolete! But my nephew and his wife were laid off of their journalist jobs on a large East Coast paper two or three years ago.

    As citizens, we must depend upon professional journalists to ferret out and publish the real news. Democracy depends upon an informed citizenry. Amateurs don't have the financial backing to spend time investigating and writing the news that we need to function as a democratic society.
