Joan Konner

Journalism has always existed in two different realities . . . the economic marketplace and [the] special institution to serve the public interest. The traditional balance between those two has become destabilized. Economic reality has taken over.More Joan Konner [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Consider children as a beat. Clearly not an institution of power, children don't vote and they don't pass taxes. They have no money, and they don't buy newspapers or watch the news on television. Consequently, children are one of the most neglected segments of society in the news, except as a subtopic of other power beats such as education, family, and crime. Children are in serious trouble in this society, which means the foundation of our society is in trouble, which means the future is in trouble, and that is news.More Joan Konner [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And journalism itself has changed. News organizations and some journalists have transformed from their traditional role as watchdogs of power into institutions of power themselves with an ability, indeed, a susceptibility, to abuse that power.More Joan Konner [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Think of ideas as a beat. To change a mind is to change the world.More Joan Konner [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Procrastination always gives you something to look forward to.More Joan Konner [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
