2009 ‘Year of the Journalist’

Arguing that the individual freelancer will gain more power, Andy Dickinson predicts 2009 will be the “Year of the Journalist” . His argument is, of course, more complex than that and is definitely worth a read.

I certainly hope he is right. So many talented journalists are out there looking for work, and we need their skills and insight. I have a bumper sticker from The Newspaper Guild on my office door that says “Democracy depends on journalism.” So true, yet in this day of journalistic uncertainty, also so scary.
