Following Prof. Subhash Dhuliya:
We sincerely believe that a serious debate needs to be initiated with the objective of rethinking journalism and underlining its societal role and public relevance in the current digital age. Technological advancement gives shape to the production, distribution and consumption of journalism.
Putting people in context one needs to assert where journalism fits in their lives and needs. Do they need journalists or just content managers?
Ideally journalism should contribute to common concerns, create an informed citizenry and debate on crucial issues. One needs to ask the all important question - is that happening?
The proposed debate would, apart from discussing these issues, also focus on the impact of technology and economics on journalism.
Newswriters.in invites your valuable comments on how such a debate could and should be generated. The editors would be grateful if you also incorporated a short bio-note with your comment.
