Ubiquitous news, global information access, instantaneous reporting, interactivity, multi-media content, extreme customization: journalism is undergoing the most fundamental transformation since the rise of the penny press in the nineteenth century. Here is a report from the front lines on the impact and implications for journalists and the public alike. John V. Pavlik argues that new media can revitalize news gathering and reengage an increasingly distrustful and alienated citizenry. Pavlik considers the implications of convergence and the emerging tools of the information age -- and speculates on their likely adoption, evolution, and impact on news and society in the twenty-first century, examining both the positive and negative forces that will shape the face of journalism in a digital age. With a foreword by Seymour Topping, administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes, the book is a valuable reference on everything from organizing a new age newsroom to job hunting in the new media.
