Internet can be accessed anywhere
Stories can be accessed and modified at anytime
Social Media and new technology allows us to always be in a state of connection
Reporters must use a variety of in-depth communication tools
Photographs, videos, sound bytes and more enhance the story
Attention, understanding, and retention of information increase with more tools
Reporters must use the Internet to their advantage by making connections.
Example: The Boston Marathon Bombings
Reporters should engage in a dialogue by using interactive new media.
"Journalism can rise again. Its power will be less about the production of specific information; rather it will filter the tsunami of the world’s information.”
Journalism will be more about filtering the information received
New tools will need to be acquired and used appropriately
Author states that journalists need to do five things differently
Customizing Journalism by localizing a story to a single person, and making it relevant.
Example: most recently a Lynn University student heard a loud noise in the Assaf courtyard, which sounded like a gun shot.
We are on such high alert due to all the school shootings in this world.
New technology brings benefits to journalists as well as future journalists
Digital media brings unlimited information
“As Edward R. Murrow warned many years ago, technology without thoughtful human involvement is merely ‘lights and wires in a box’”
(Kaul, p. 141, 2013).
Technology is becoming the primary way of receiving information
Benefits may include: instant alerts of breaking news
Cons: journalism may be in trouble
Colleges and universities needs to change their curriculum
Journalists must try to adapt to this new level of digitization
Change is inevitable at this point in time
