New journalism: We've got it

by Jeb Bing

Mike Consol and I had a fun morning a couple of weeks ago talking about the print media and so-called new journalism with the 33 participants in this year's Pleasanton Leadership. It was the group's annual "Media Day," which meets at Las Positas College. Mike and I help conduct this interactive forum each year although the audience is always new, so we know what to say and the likely questions we'll be asked. An easy assignment, but always upbeat and this year more challenging. For this group, the term "new journalism" is a popular way of pointing to Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Google as the new way much of the public -- those under 50, at least -- are getting their news. Mike has years of experience in the print media, including top posts with American City Business Journals, including the former East Bay Business Times.
