Business Journalism Is Dying?

There is more interest, argument and passion surrounding the condition and future of American business than there has been in several generations. And yet, in the space of three months, two business magazines — the organs that exist to offer the stuff people are clamoring for — have been abandoned. One, Portfolio, a newbie, was closed. The other, Business Week, an old stalwart, is up for sale, according to reports that caught even the magazine’s own editorial staff by surprise.

As someone said, magazines are dying.

Not journalism.

With basic information available to everyone, people can reach lots of people/sources for analysis and opinions.

I cringe at the term ‘citizen journalism’ but I personally think that it is where business journalism is headed, except in this case ‘citizens’ won’t be on the road, but in the cubicle next to yours
