Concerned optimism among online journalists

I’m not very surprised:

“Journalists who work online are more optimistic about the future of their profession than are news people tied to more traditional media platforms”, according to a new report from the Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism

A few more findings:

  • These online news people also believe that the Internet is changing the fundamental values of journalism—and more often than not for the worse.
  • When it came to the impact of the Internet on values, the most cited change was a loosening of standards and more carelessness in online news gathering.
