Summary "In response to mounting concerns about the future of the press, an outpouring of lively debate and proposals for alternative models of journalism has exploded across journals of opinion, the blogosphere, and academic publications. Despite this proliferation, a comprehensive overview of this new terrain has been noticeably missing-just what will the world look like without newspapers. Will the Last Reporter Please Turn Out the Lights offers the first roadmap to this crucially important new debate, in a concise and accessible introduction to the current schools of thought emerging in response to the journalism crisis, with contributions by the leading media analysts writing today"-- Provided by publisher.
