Ross Gittins: Must We Destroy Journalism in Order to Save It?

When

There will be more to the survival of quality journalism in an age of digital disruption than just moving it to online platforms and adding a few cyber bells and whistles. The journalism itself will need to change in ways many established journalists won’t like.
