BBC radio 4 look at the impact of blogging on US journalism in New kids on the blog (Wednesday 19 December 2007 11:00-11:30)
Matt Frei looks at how the digital revolution is changing the face of American media.
American journalism is changing faster than ever before and the mass audiences of the nightly network news are in decline. With the internet explosion, Americans now get their news from an increasing number of sources.
Matt Frei takes stock of what is happening by talking to figures from the established mainstream media – including ex-CBS anchor Dan Rather – as well as the new generation of web-based journalists.
I hope it’s better informed than the trails which generally seem to think that citizen journalists and bloggers are the same thing!
