This "Journalism vs PR" discussion piques "Bill's" curiosity. He raises a couple of issues regarding PR that some PR pros may want to address:
"I have been involved in the tensions between citizen journalists (bloggers and the like) and traditional journalists but adding a triangulation with Public Relations complicates the picture in a useful way.
"I would be interested in seeing more extensively how public relations has had to change with rising technology, and whether public relations might have more in common with citizen journalism than traditional professional journalism."
Floor's open to anyone who'd like to share some thoughts with Bill.
(Bill also refers us to OurBlook.com where, he says, "there are some great interviews with journalists about the future of journalism and the changes new developments demand." There also is a compelling article there by PR practitioner Vanessa Horwell on journalism's future. -- David)
