Media Monday: State of the Media 2011

The Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism released it's State of the News Media 2011 this morning. It states that the news industry is beginning to recover from the economic downturn but still faces major challenges, not only in adapting to new technology and connecting readers to revenue generating products, but also in it's vast uncertainty.
"Beneath all this, however, a more fundamental challenge to journalism became clearer in the last year. The biggest issue ahead may not be lack of audience or even lack of new revenue experiments. It may be that in the digital realm the news industry is no longer in control of its own future."
The report covers a study on community news websites specifically focusing on Seattle, which is dear to my heart being the big city in my home state, Washington.

Wander on over and check out the state of the industry.
