Journalism in the Rear View

With the pressure on conventional journalism caused by the increasing popularity of other news sources, many talented journalists are leaving the profession, voluntarily or otherwise. Those who have left the profession often have some interesting perspectives on it.

Here are thoughts on journalism blogged by a) a young guy who left a promising journalism job because he didn’t like what he saw anymore; b) a mid-career guy who moved on to public relations and shares some thoughts on alleged left-leaning bias in journalism; and c) a veteran freelancer permanently ousted from a good contract, basically because he couldn’t keep up with the younger guys (and there is apparently no value in years of experience):

Fortunately for all of us, there are still plenty of journalists, like those describing themselves in yesterday’s link, who are proud of what they do and have no plans to do anything else.
