According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of obsolete is something that is no longer used because something else exists. I do believe with the changing times, journalism is being transformed. However, as stated in Matthew Ingram’s post, news comes in different forms. Myself, I read the Sioux City Journal daily…on my cell-phone. Others may get their news sources through scrolling on Twitter or Facebook.
As social media develops, I think journalism will become obsolete in different forms. By this, I don’t think newspapers will be selling straight off the shelf like they did before. If everyone can access news from their computer, phone, or television screen what is the point?
