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.

In the world of journalism there are many aspects that can be taken into account when you are reporting stories. Business and law reporting are two main types of stories that are covered on a daily basis by journalists globally. The business journalist or reporter covers in-depth reports about the latest in business, launch of products, stock markets etc.

There are many shows dedicated only for business news on television whereas in newspapers, one can find a special section dedicated to this subject. Without business journalism, there is a lot of information regarding the economy and the business world that the public will be unaware of.

High-quality business reporting is at the heart of strong and sustainable organizations, financial markets, and economies.

It allows organizations to present a cohesive explanation of their business and helps them engage with internal and external stakeholders, including customers, employees, shareholders, creditors, and regulators, while also promoting better internal decision making, the International Federation of Accounts reported.

Like business reporting, legal reporting is essential to almost every media organization. Covering court cases that affects the lives of members of the public is an important task for news media. The judiciary is one of the three branches of government, and covering what goes on within our courts is one of the overseer roles of the media.

Also, the public has a great interest in what the courts do, especially in criminal court cases. Criminal justice coverage is necessary for the public so that they can know that justice is served and criminal are punished for their crimes. Also, this type of reporting can also expose the unfairness in the legal system for victims or defendants.                                       Both legal and business reporting play vital roles in media organizations.
