Journalism is Dead; Long Live Journalism

"Journalism is Dead; Long Live Journalism,” will be a fast-paced, results-focused summit from 10 a.m. on Wed., April 3 through 5:30 p.m. on Thurs., April 4, 2013 in Denver. Conducted in JTM’s signature "Open Space" style, the event starts by acknowledging that journalism as we’ve known it may not be sustainable, but that a fast-emerging new ecosystem presents opportunities to renew and extend journalism’s values, principles and purposes. 

The body of journalism as we’ve known it is dead. But its values, principles and purposes -- a respect for truth, fierce independence -- are as cherished, vital and needed as ever. The news was paid for by mass-market advertising – print and broadcast – and through print subscriptions. Those supports are shrinking – fast. Can philanthropy and donations alone pick up the slack? What core elements of the news as we’ve known it are really critical to sustaining and nurturing communities and participatory democracy?
