End of news? My essay on why the crisis of journalism is beyond business models or trust—and what it means for democracy. #media #journalism
News was a historical cultural invention within certain conditions and with specific functions. Those conditions have now changed, I argued, leading to the demise of news. medium.com/s/story/face-i…
