No legacy: Explaining digital journalism's innovation problem.


I want them to shake things up. That’s my bottom line. If you go to sites today, from Buzzfeed to Vox to 538, are these sites shaking things up?

Journalist Michael Massing surveys the state of digital journalism, from revenue model flailing to surprisingly unsurprising news content, and suggests what journalism in the 21st century should be doing with its huge audience and advanced communication technology.

Michael has been working on a series of articles on digital journalism for the New York Review of Books. The first two pieces are Digital Journalism: How Good is it? and Digital Journalism: The Next Generation.
