Sustainable Journalism

Journalism will be "more distributed" and "citizen produced" and some news orgs will survive, some will not, says Lee Raine of the Pew Center for the Internet and American Life.  "There's every reason to think high quality journalism will be alive and well long after our grandchildren are dead."  He was interviewed as part of the Sustainable Journalism project.

A portion of the population will always be interested enough in serious public life, he says.  Various revenue streams will be necessary to pay for good journalism.  Journalism skills "have never been more precious."
