In accordance with the syllabus, I have “sniffed” the “Go To Sites” on http://trinity2012.typepad.com/my-blog/?wref=bif and have selected the two I will monitor religiously.
- David Carr, Media Equation columnist for the NYTimes. A reporter for more than 25 years, Carr focuses on issues within the media, and I believe he’ll be a useful sounding board to note trends and problems that various media are experiencing.
- Nieman Journalism Lab: Direct quote from the “About” section of the website, “The Nieman Journalism Lab is an attempt to help journalism figure out its future in an Internet age.” Between common sense and the Pew Research Center’s Annual Report on the State of News Media, it is clear that print journalism is becoming ever more difficult, while online news sites are taking off quickly, albeit running into many obstacles. Nieman focuses on this issue and will be an invaluable source in helping me weed through various opinions, arguments, studies etc.
