The Aspen Institute Dialogue on the Future of Journalism

JournalismJournalism is an early and prime example of an industry and profession affected by the digital disruption and the rise of networks. The Journalism industry transformed itself from an editor and filterer of the world’s news to a curator, interpreter and agent for the news consumer. “That’s the way it is,” is now “that’s how it could be.” As the profession emerges from a decade of disruption, a number of new principles, models and practices have emerged. At the same time, there are timeless values that define news and expression that need to be preserved. The Dialogue on the Future of Journalism boldly addresses how new forms of expression will impact the future of journalism, particularly in an era of global user generated content and information inflation.
