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.
