Journalism and the need for print

Journalism is undergoing rapid change, some say to the point where there no longer is a profession called journalism. Can You Tube and the Internet provide the same in depth eyes and ears, interpretation and understanding that a trained print journalist can reporting for a daily or weekly newspaper? Is a picture truly worth a thousand words? There is strong case that the answer is "no" and that as a society we are on the road to an ignorance that may lead us to be sheep to slogans, rumor and whatever those in power want you to believe or do. On man with this strong view is 82 year old veteran journalist Harold Evans (who happens to be married to the founder and publisher of a major on-line only journalism source).

From the NPR web site for "Here and Now":

Legendary British Newspaperman Harold Evans

Listen to the interview by going to the web site,  or read his latest book, as he writes about how as a boy he remembers the slanted pro-appeasement news slant in England even as British troops fled from Dunkirk on every type of fishing vessel imaginable. He has lived and been a part of journalism for 70 years, and is one of the top scholars on the subject of the role of and need for free journalist to maintain a free society.

Harold Evans is the only person ever to serve as editor at both the Sunday Times and The Times of of London. At those and other papers he practiced a brand of investigative journalism that uncovered injustice and exposed secrets. And, ever the optimist, Evans still believes in the power of newspapers. His entertaining new memoir is “My Paper Chase: True Stories of Vanished Times.”

A new comment on your post "Knowledge":

I realized that those quotes were one of those things that I always new, but never really put into words. It's very true though, how can we be expected to vote for things to change our lives when we have no idea what is going on. Of course technology is a double edged sword. Now we get more information, but it has become more personalized and biased than ever.
Ever since this class started though I have started to consider the things I have taken as truth more carefully. Then again I think that's part of the purpose of higher education isn't it?
