Journalistand Internet enthusiast Ann Friedman. Welcome Hi George. How are you? I’m excellent. Tell us about yourjournalistic background I’ve been a novelist and journalist for about 10 times and I write a column for ColumbiaJournalism Review answering journalists questions about the future of media What do you think is going tohappen with newspapers? well I don’t think newspapers will live forvery long I do is of the view that the stomach for thenews is is quite strong Absolutely. and all sorts of research saysthat that people are consuming more information than ever are hungry for info than ever.What’s the distinctions between magazine bulletin and digital bulletin? Mostly it’sthe move it’s that you know in the newspaperworld to use a kind to waste the day putting together a story and then someone would revise it in theevening and then it would go to press and then in the following morning and parties would open up and read it over coffee and now things are still being edited inreviewed and in many cases factchecked things are still being reported you knowpeople are still picking up the phone and talking to parties it’s just that it’s all happeningconstantly on sometimes at the hurry of a tweet in 140 personas and sometimes at thespeed of a monthly month long project.What is the newsindustry go to look like in 10 times? I hope I’m not replaced byrobot of some kind I hope I’m still doing this errand I hope so too. I meditate I have a lotmore personality than a robot which is increasingly important you know asconsumers make choices based on who’s presenting them the information so you’re rosy about the futurejournalism I am. And I share that with you we havemore options now more parties participating and gettingdifferent perspectives it’s exciting to me that there are allthese new ways for people to access the story there’s always going to be people whoare misinformed but you know that was also the instance in a previous epoch, peoplebut supermarket tabloids that happened you know.
