As a former print journalist trying to transition to Web writing, I am keenly interested in the answer to this question.
To explore the topic, I interviewed several bloggers who cover the newspaper industry. Among them: Mark Potts, of Recovering Journalist, Paul Gillin, of Newspaper Death Watch, Al Tompkins, of Poynter's Al's Morning Meeting, and Jennifer Saba, of Editor & Publisher's Fitz and Jen blog.
I've been quiet here since I took my buyout from The Post and Courier in August, but now that I'm more or less self-sustaining as a freelancer/consultant, I've been feeling a great freedom to write more openly about the business and what I see ahead of us.
The higher-ups here have asked me to draft a plan to bring a longstanding sports feature into the future. It's a Q & A with about 85 local high school students, all interviewed individually, about being their school's "best and brightest."

So, like millions of others this weekend, my wife and I sat and talked about the looming billions (trillions?) set to head to failed Wall Street investment banks.
The big question on our minds: Why, exactly, should we be forced into assuming the debt of those who made bad investments or enticed others into risky (or, as is increasingly coming to light, downright reckless) behavior?
I'm no economist, so I can't speak to the health of worldwide markets. But I do balance a checkbook… Continue
Go read Scott Karp's post on coverage of the Bear Stearns story. It's an interesting case study in the differences of how journalism works in a web-native world vs. a print world. Of particular interest is the difference in coverage of NYTimes.com (not so interesting) vs. a NYT blog (very interesting).
I'll say it again: If you want to grasp web journalism, you need… Continue
