Last week, I did my own personal account of how it felt to have left newspapers behind to do blogging and the perceived rivalries but also support between them. Guess there’s a meme going around.
Today, the New Yorker has a nice article looking at the seeming coming death of newspapers and how blogs like the Huffington Post have moved into the gap. It concludes with the same concern I have — will we be losing the in-depth journalism that the mainstream media has provided, and will those that depend on it (not as readers, but to have someone speaking for them) be at a loss.
I certainly don’t know what will come, but I can only hope that somehow, that type of work will survive even if newspapers don’t.
