R.I.P. Journalism? Not so fast...

Steven Gan  |  Published:  |  Modified:

Journalism is dead. Long live the journalist! Contradictory, isn't it? Hardly.

Journalism, as we've known it for over a century, is long gone. But the role of journalist - in recording events, in building opinions, in presenting facts - is here to stay.

There is no other profession today which is facing so much change as journalism. Really, this seismic shift is akin to an engineer waking up one fine morning to discover that Newton's Law of Gravity no longer applies.

In times of great change, there's bound to be some confusion. So it's not surprising that journalists are still trying to make sense of the Internet revolution which threatens to smother us.
