Eisman: Journalism entering “New World”

Applying fixed values to new formats is a winning combination for journalists.

The media landscape of journalism is changing, and journalists are no longer “gate-keepers” of information, said Director of Writing Programs at American University’s School of Communication, Amy Eisman.

While addressing a class of graduate journalism students from American University, Eisman highlighted the link between evolving technology and general access to information.

“Embrace all the voices from the citizenry,” Eisman said. “Know your environment.”

Technological advances, especially in the area of information sharing, have changed the way users expect to receive and process news. Interaction is now key.
