Journalism schools must become information management schools - Nicolas Kayser-Bril
One possibility for journalism schools would be to focus on (...) gathering and producing information in the public interest. This would imply a strong focus on news gathering on social media, digital forensics (to assess the veracity of a piece of content), data gathering and analysis and shoe-and-leather investigation.
There are two problems with this approach. Not all journalism students like these topics. Some still associate journalism with fame (many want to become a news anchor) or travels. Most importantly, there is no market for professional information managers working exclusively in the public interest. (...)
The other possibility for journalism schools is to focus on information management, the first part of the definition of journalism. They need to drop the pretense that they have anything to do with the balance of powers and focus exclusively on producing excellent information management professionals.
