Internet's Imprint on Journalism

FSG Associate Gerard Smith spent an afternoon with a class at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in Chicago, presenting some thought-provoking trend analysis on the impact of the Internet on the business model of journalism. The apparent breakdown of the legacy model of advertising paying the freight for print and broadcast content was the main subject of quite an interesting exchange with the very bright graduate journalism students of Professor William Handy. Principal Patrick Marren also sat in on the session.
