Journalism Program: Trends in Magazine Journalism
The internet has accelerated the financial decline of most forms of journalism, many of which had long been in trouble. Because publishers were either unable or unwilling to change, the standard business model of relying on revenue from consumers or advertisers is in crisis.
But what of the future of journalism itself? To what degree will the quality and practice of journalism suffer the fate of the business model?
Robert S. Boynton, a distinguished journalist and teacher, will give his perspective on these questions at this evening Journalism Program. Boynton has closely watched trends in journalism both as a widely published writer (The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, The Village Voice, Rolling Stone, and many other publications) and as director of the Literary Reportage concentration at New York University's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. He is also the author of the book "The New New Journalism." He is currently a Fulbright Fellow in Japan, working on a book about North Korea's abduction of Japanese and South Koreans in the 1970s and 1980s.
