New Journalism: Black and White and Reddit All Over (A SXSW Core Conversation)

638 views

Published on

The evolution of blogging has seen the medium move from outlets of a personal nature to a major source of online content, often with great notoriety and controversy. Today the genre faces an identity crisis, as the line has blurred between opinion writing, reporting, and paid content. Integrity often takes a backseat to earning a living, and journalistic standards are all but abandoned under the guise of platform ownership.

The blogger community is experiencing an internal backlash as many cry out for stronger guidelines and a movement toward integrity. Can the reputation of blogging be restored through more ethical writing policies and is it possible to be both credible and earn compensation for opinions?

This Core Conversation will explore the adversarial relationship between journalists and bloggers, focusing on ethics, integrity, and the current climate of content creation for news and entertainment.
