Dit is de Amerikaanse krant van 2008

July 22, 2008

Studie over de Amerikaanse krantensector van het Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ). Voor het onderzoek werden 250 Amerikaanse kranten onder de loep genomen en redacteuren in vijftien verschillende steden geïnterviewd. Dit staat in het onderzoeksresultaat te lezen.

It has fewer pages than three years ago, the paper stock is thinner, and the stories are shorter. There is less foreign and national news, less space devoted to science, the arts, features and a range of specialized subjects.

Business coverage is either packaged in an increasingly thin stand-alone section or collapsed into another part of the paper. The crossword puzzle has shrunk, the TV listings and stock tables may have disappeared, but coverage of some local issues has strengthened and investigative reporting remains highly valued.

Steven Smith, editor-in-chief of the Spokesman-Review over de studie:

“Our readers are migrating away from print to digital platforms. We must migrate with them. Failure to change, put plainly, means failure (…) Our success will depend on the commitment of each of us to be fearless in the face of relentless, never-ending change, gritty in the face of doubt and resolute in the service of our communities who continue to rely on our journalism as never before.”
