As newspaper owners like Rupert Murdoch bemoan the state of the newspaper industry, I have always believed that the future of journalists is different from the future of newspapers
So, my question is: Which journalist would you pay for / respect most and why?
Note the question is not which NEWSPAPER do you pay for – but rather which JOURNALIST do you pay for.
It’s a bit like the restaurant industry .. you pay for the ‘Chef’ – who in the best restaurants has a brand of his/her own. The Chef may go elsewhere and get paid. So, I am saying – if top journalists worldwide created a system (call it a subscribe only club) – then we all benefit.
Thus, the future of the newspapers may not be the same as the future of the journalist(which may be brighter than the future of the newspaper)
what about you?
