Interview with Jay Rosen

In Podcast on March 8, 2009 by Dave Winer

A picture named rosen.jpgIt’s a good idea to check in with Jay on where journalism is at every once in a while, which is what I did this morning. I’m going to try to do these more regularly with people who are on the Friends Of Dave channel, like Jay.

We start off talking about curmudgeons, then on to rebooting journalism, Meet The Press, the broken government, and everything related. Jay is really smart, spends a lot of time thinking about things I really care about. I thought the interview came out great. Hope you all listen. 40 minutes.

Jay is a professor of journalism at NYU and was my choice as Blogger of the Year for 2008.

Update: Three articles mentioned in the interview.

A follow-up: It might make sense for Jay to offer one or two paragraph critiques of various bits of journalism. For example this story on TechCrunch is interesting, but it might be more believable if we knew who the author was talking to, or why the source wouldn’t go on the record.

Handwritten notes from the interview.
