The Evolution Of Journalism

  • SHARES

By Kenny Day 

Slate Group‘s John Alderman, DC Magazine‘s Karen Sommer Shalett, AP‘s Steve Komarow and Politico‘s Jonathan Martin kindly took part in a surprisingly-candid discussion about the future of journalism before a packed house of more than 70 media professionals last night at K Street Lounge.

Some things we learned:
– The vast majority of attendees do not have a newspaper delivered to their doorstep every morning. Roughly 20% do.
– Less than half of AP‘s revenue is from print publications.
– The chap with the British accent really really loves The Economist.
Politico is “a website that happens to have a newspaper” [which accounts for the majority of its revenue].
– Good journalists are no safer with a “big name” publication than they are with a start-up.
– It’s okay to check your blackberry while participating in a panel discussion.
– Steve Komarow knows what a Teletype Machine is and how to use it.
