"[A] comprehensive look at the history of the news./i> recommends [Brock's] historical overview to those in and out the news business who believe that a free society prospers when journalism does."--getAbstract "Inc. "


News and journalism are in the midst of upheaval. How does news publishing change when a newspaper sells as little as 300,000 copies but its website attracts 31 million visitors? These shifts are forcing assumptions and practices to be rethought from first principles. The internet is not simply allowing faster, wider distribution of material: digital technology is demanding transformative change. Journalism needs to be rethought on a global scale and remade to meet the demands of new conditions. Out of Print examines the past, present and future for a fragile industry battling a 'perfect storm' of falling circulations, reduced advertising revenue, rising print costs and the impact of 'citizen journalists' and free news aggregators. Author George Brock argues that journalism can flourish in a new communications age, and explains how current theory and practice have to change to fully exploit developing opportunities. Providing a unique examination of every key issue, from the phone-hacking scandal and Leveson Inquiry to the impact of social media on news and expectations, Out of Print presents an incisive, authoritative analysis of the role and influence of journalism in the digital age.

Wie geht es Zeitungen und dem gedruckten Journalistmus in Zeiten der Online-Medien? Seit fast zwanzig Jahren hören wir vom Sterben der Printmedien. Erstaunlich viele gibt es immer noch, manche machen sogar noch Gewinne - etlichen Konzernen sind die Margen zu gering, aber das macht Printmedien noch lange nicht grundsätzlich unrentabel.
Wohin geht die Reise? George Brock hat zu diesem Fragenkomplex das derzeit beste Buch geschrieben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lessons in digital disruption 5. September 2013
Von John Gibbs - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Many busy people take journalism for granted, but the disruption of journalism should be a matter of urgent concern to democratic societies because the free flow, integrity and independence of journalism is essential to citizens who vote, according to journalism professor George Brock in this book. The book aims to explain why the news media is undergoing radical alteration, and what the result ought to be and might be.

The book provides an entertaining overview of the history of journalism, from its messy and opinionated beginnings featuring sensational and unreliable news stories through to the Leveson Inquiry in 2011 and 2012 into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press following the News International phone hacking scandal. In a 2000-page final report, Justice Leveson made a range of recommendations which would improve the protection of privacy in the UK and restrain the excesses of the press.

However, it is not the Leveson recommendations which provide the greatest threat to the press; rather, it is the digital disruption brought about by the Internet. Shrinking subscriber bases and advertising revenue have resulted in the crumbing of the established business model. Experiments have been made with paywalls and meters, but so far no-one has established a clearly viable new business model. The author suggests that news sites which prosper online require:

* a clear and distinct promise of value;
* a lean organisation that only scales up cautiously;
* diverse sources of income;
* niche target audiences served by different sites or contributors;
* high-calibre software;
* proficient capture and use of customer data;
* willingness to experiment

The author is pessimistic about the future of the press as we know it, but optimistic about the future of journalism, which he believes will find new ways to address financial sustainability. In my view the book provides some useful lessons for other types of businesses which are at a less advanced stage along the path to digital disruption.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Journalism: Past, Present and Future 26. Dezember 2013
Von Shalom Freedman - Veröffentlicht auf
This is a book which in a sense is written in the hope of revitalizing Journalism. It provides a history of the business and tries to contend with the general pessimism which has come to the profession in recent years with the contracting of Print Media and the ascension of Digita formats of expression. It points out that the centralized powerful Print world many think of as the only face of Journalism is a relatively recent development in its history. The Golden Era of Journalism which began in the 1890's Brock suggests had already begun to fade somewhat in the fifties of the twentieth century. Brock tells the story of the Digital Transformation the drastic loss in Advertising revenues , the contraction in personnel and outlets which came to the Print world once the Computer began taking over. He indicates however that News as we think of it was not necessarily the primary business of that grab-bag creation the Newspaper. All in all he provides in this age of Abundance of Information a great deal of information and clear thought about Jounalism its idea and ideals. He suggests that much of its future is open to experimentation and that new developments will come which will help strengthen the free flow of ideas, the objective reporting of reality, the investigating of and keeping honest government and business officials. This is a book for the General Reader but it should be of course of first interest to all who practice and would practice the trade of Journalism.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Clear-Eyed Dissection of the Contemporary Newspaper Industry (with a British focus) 17. Januar 2014
Von Dr. Laurence Raw - Veröffentlicht auf
OUT OF PRINT takes a long, hard look at the British newspaper industry - its past, present and future. The author, a former journalist with many years of experience - for example, at the London SUNDAY TIMES - looks at the way in which newspapers acquired a position of considerable primacy in British cultures from the mid-eighteenth to the late twentieth centuries, a position that is now under threat through digitization. Brock is well aware of how the internet has changed the ways in which readers consume news - looking for outlets other than that of the newspapers and exercising freedom of choice, as well as making the news themselves through blogs. On the other hand, he believes that there is a future for the printed newspaper - perhaps the circulation figures will not be as substantial as they were in the past, but Brock understands how many readers prefer paper to the screen, even if they own an IPad or a smartphone. Ultimately OUT OF PRINT calls for the newspaper industry to become more flexible, to reject its antediluvian practices of the past, both in terms of news-gathering and distribution, and adapt itself to changing practices. A combination of the tried and tested, the reliable and the trustworthy, allied to new, innovative methods of delivering the news, both in print and online, seems like the formula for future success. Perhaps the book is a little too parochial in focus (there is too much on the Leverson inquiry, and not enough on developments within the American newspaper industry), but it is nonetheless well written and highly accessible.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A very useful and entertaining book about the business of journalism. What I liked most about it is that it traces the origins of the business of journalism making this book a good primer about that subject.
