As I was reading about Digital Journalism: Excerpts from the Columbia Graduate School: The Story So Far, What We Know About the Business of Digital Journalism I figured it was very interesting and educating at the same time. Digital journalism also known as online journalism is a contemporary form of journalism where editorial content is distributed via the Internet as opposed to publishing via print or broadcast.

News from Everywhere: Chapter one, which is ‘The Economics of Digital Journalism’, focuses a great deal on how the digital world contributes a great deal to the nation’s economy. Rick Edmonds who studies the financial side of the new business for Poynter’s Website claimed that newspapers’ online revenue grew by more than 30 percent in both 2005 and 2006.

I personally think that the digital transformation of the news industry has grown tremendously over the years. Newsrooms and newspapers have swelled in size over the years, and digital medium has taken a permanent place in the media industry.

With audiences and ad revenue growing even as competitors disappeared, digital journalism is growing constantly. The best part about digital journalism is that there are fewer barriers to entry, lowered distribution costs, and diverse computer networking technologies have led to the widespread practice of digital journalism.

There Are Many Approaches to Journalism.

Journalism has taken many different approaches, and international reporting is a very essential and crucial aspect of journalism. York College recently had a seminar about international reporting, which makes up a large chunk of the news.  As long as the idea of media goes back, international reporting has been covered by journalists all over the place, and about all types of events globally.

International journalism is a great area for journalists to explore. There is so much more going on in the world and beyond your country’s borders. International reporting enables millions of people to know about what is transpiring in other countries and how global activities affect the rest of the world.

As a journalism student and a writer for my school’s newspaper, I strongly believe that more journalism students should be engaging in international journalism. Foreign policy and diplomacy is a subject that affects people all over the world and being able to report internally allows you to interact and meet people from all walks of life.

Journalism and international affairs allows you to enter into a world of an increasingly globalized, technology-focused workforce which is the reality that it all comes down to. Also, I would say taking a few classes in political science is great for a journalism portfolio especially if you are interested in international reporting. Both journalism and politics are designed to give students a strong conceptual understanding of both communication media and international politics.
