Online Journalism Blog made predicitions about the nature of journalism in the next 25 years.

Oddly enough the blog predicts people will “still be prediciting the death of newspapers.

               Because print media is becoming less and less profitable a popular belief is it will eventually disapear. The blog writer ” Influence and status are hard to buy. As long as newspapers offer either, there will be proprietors willing to make a loss on the balance sheet, for benefits elsewhere.”

Another interesting prediction is the comparison between journalists and musicians The blog predicits that because journalists, nowadays, do not need college degrees to write, the importance of growing a fanbase is increased. In 25 years journalists will get jobs based on the following they can build, not the education they receive.
