Dean Starkman takes on what has become a dominant perspective on the future of news in the digital age as personified by three well known media thinkers—Jay Rosen, Clay Shirky, and Jeff Jarvis—who have dominated the "future of news" debate. Starkman makes a powerful case that the perspective that these three represent, despite their many useful insights, is in the end corrosive to public-service journalism.

Dean Starkman, Columbia Journalism Review's Kingsford Capital fellow, runs The Audit. His forthcoming book The Watchdog That Didn't Bark: The Economic Crisis and the Financial Press, will be published by Columbia University Press.
