Breaking news! Experts say there’s a lot wrong with new media journalism. According to the Daily Beast’s Michael Moynihan, the real crime being committed by online journalists is overused, over-hyped language. He joins us to share his linguistic pet-peeves.

A number of major newspapers have stopped the presses in recent years. Meanwhile, community journalism sites have sprung up from Seattle to Springfield. Media gurus declared “hyperlocalism” to be the future of journalism and a path for out-of-work reporters. A few big ticket news outfits took that bet, including AOL, which launched Patch.com in 2010. A few years on, hyper-local phenomenon takes many forms, with differing degrees of success.

We close this week with a farewell, to a reporter who has caused more than his share of driveway moments.

In his more than 11 years at NHPR, Dan Gorenstein has hit the campaign trail with presidential candidates, tracked historic debates at the statehouse, even followed the supply chain of mozzarella cheese once for a series on food. He has found stories of Granite Staters that sometimes left us laughing – and sometimes left us with lumps in our throats.

As the journalism world continues to grow and change, media companies are constantly brainstorming ways to find the next best revenue stream, while still trying to maintain integrity.  Some experts say journalists could help the cause by building their own personal brand outside of the institutions they work for.  It’s a concept that has caused lots of discussion, and some controversy, among journalists across the internet.  Owen Youngman is a journalism professor at the Medill School at Northwestern University who teaches and

Traditional news organizations pride themselves for upholding clear divisions between their business and editorial operations.
