Alguém está a fazer algum estudo deste tipo em Portugal?
Legendary British reporter is interviewed for the portuguese magazine Ipsilon:
“Never use the Internet”, advised old Fisk, and no one is sure if he was talking serious. “If people read it all on the Internet, they’ll stop buying newspapers, that no longer will afford to pay special correspondents just like me.”
O lendário repórter britânico em entrevista na Ipsilon:
“Nunca usem a Internet”, aconselhou o velho Fisk, e ninguém tem a certeza de ele estar a falar a sério. “Se as pessoas lerem tudo na Internet, deixarão de comprar os jornais, que deixarão de ter dinheiro para pagar a enviados especiais como eu.”
Is there a market for quality journalism? Yes!, Jeff Jarvis @ The Guardian
As was pointed out at Ditchley Park, journalism already is subsidised: the Guardian has its Scott Trust, the Times its mogul, the Washington Post a profitable education company, the Telegraph its sales of wine, local papers their council ads, and everybody has – had – classified ads.

2008: A Year in User-Generated News , NowPublic

With our CoScripter project, we aim to change that, through the idea of social scripting.
Who, what, when, where and why is J-school so big?, Timesunion.com
Dig into the numbers, though, and you’ll find “journalism” can be a misleading label. Most people studying journalism and mass communication aren’t interested in careers as old-school newshounds sniffing out scandals for newspapers, magazines and TV stations.
Some study the news as a liberal arts subject like English, and then head off to law school. Other J-school grads become public relations people who shape the news or advertising people who create the commercials that pay for it.
“They recognize that there are lots of opportunities to do things on the Web,” said Lee Becker, a University of Georgia professor who tracks their job prospects. Data show “students are optimistic that their communication skills are going to serve them well in the future. And I think they’re correct.”

What Bloggers Can Learn From Journalists, chrisbrogan.com
This is a guest post by Anita Bruzzese
I have a lot of fun reading blogs and often learn a lot. But as a trained journalist, sometimes I see things in a blogger’s copy that bugs me a bit, and sometimes I read stuff that makes me cringe. Some of it just confuses me, and some of it appalls me. So, when Chris asked me to write a guest post on what bloggers can learn from journalists, I decided to make a list…
