Write at least three paragraphs (at least 300 total words) that accomplish the following:
1. FIRST PARAGRAPH: Discuss The Skimm newsletter (include your thoughts on the voice and tone, type and style of news coverage, frequency of delivery, its revenue streams, whether or not you enjoyed reading it and why, and your prognosis for its future as a legitimate news organization.)
2. SECOND PARAGRAPH: Discuss the video (include your thoughts on how you think the change in delivery speed of the news has impacted the field of journalism overall).
3. THIRD PARAGRAPH: Imagine The Skimm as representative of one end of a spectrum (shallow, broad news coverage) and traditional investigative journalism (deep, specialized news coverage of the type featured in the movie Spotlight, or practiced by the Muckrakers of old who used to dig deep to expose corruption), as being on the other end of the same spectrum. Briefly compare and contrast the two, then share with us your own thoughts about the likely future state of news delivery. What do YOU think will emerge as the dominant form of news delivery? Why?
4. FINAL THOUGHTS: Share any other thoughts you may have about journalism in this century. Is it still important, valuable and worthwhile? Why? Will it survive? Should it? Why or why not?
