The Internet vs. Traditional Media
This week we are looking at ways that the Internet is impacting traditional media outlets like newspapers and TV, and how journalism has been affected by the rise of Internet and blogging. These include what some see as a negative impact that is killing journalism, TV, and papers, and what others say are innovations in sharing news and information with new and broader audiences.
For your next prompt, I'm going to leave this one open. You may comment on any aspect of the readings, though keep your topic focused (perhaps to just one type of media outlet, like newspapers OR TV) and, as always, take a position on your topic with solid evidence and reasoning.
