Journalism & The New Media Ecology: Who Will Pay The Messenger?
A dramatic shift in the way Americans receive and use news and information, stimulated by the growing dominance of the Internet and other electronic media, has cut deeply into the circulation and advertising revenues of news media and their ability to gather and deliver the journalism on which our democracy depends.
A search is underway for new ways to support the work of the Fourth Estate. Yale Law School’s Knight Law and Media Program and Information Society Project are inviting scholars, media leaders, journalists, faculty, students and interested citizens to share their insights and creative ideas during a two-day conference at the Law School, November 13-14, 2009.
The Knight Law and Media Program is generously supported by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
