The news frontier: having an impact

The news frontier. The Columbia Journalism Review presents a comprehensive look at the ins and outs of digital news entrepreneurship. Four festival panels on this key subject.

Having an impact. Can small online news outlets do big stories? Is most online journalism actually worth a damn–trapped as it is in the constraints of the hourly online news cycle? We’ll talk about ways that undermanned news startups can actually do work that resonates in the real world. And we’ll also talk about the problem with getting caught on the digital journalism hamster wheel.
