12 Questions about Future of Journalism

Bill Kovach, who is a senior counselor to the Project for Excellence in Journalism and a founder of the Committee of Concerned Journalists, poses 12 questions about the future of journalism. The full list can be found at the American Scholar website. Here are two on which I spending more and more time addressing and on which my Representative Journalism project is built:

Can newspapers find an economic model to replace the loss of advertising to finance the work of editors and reporters who substantiate what is reported?

Will the public realize that the news they now acquire for free will rapidly diminish in quality and value if a new way is not found to fund its production by careful practitioners?
