The future of journalism …

… Why high-quality analysis is no longer the preserve of print journalism. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Physical newspapers are in decline; soon the grand old mastheads will be seen only on screens. But this may not be their salvation. Their problem is … that a lot of people have got there first. In particular, there are now many online-only journals producing high-quality opinion and analysis, once almost the sole preserve of the broadsheet newspapers. But are they good enough to compete with the highly paid opinionators and analysers of the newspapers? The answer, I fear, is that in some cases they are and, in a few cases, they are better.
