Shifting Influence: From Institution to Individual

Harris, John
June 2008
Nieman Reports;Summer2008, Vol. 62 Issue 2, p15
The author offers opinions on online journalism and its effect on other mass media news outlets such as television broadcasting and newspapers. His own experiences as an editor of the political news Web site Politico.com are cited as examples. The Internet is seen as creating a shift in consumer preferences, with Internet users more interested in specialized journalism than general-interest news, and with more attention paid to the work of individual reporters and commentators rather than to the institution which employs them.
