Summary
As an increasing number of newspapers across the country begin making their information available in online forms, journalists face potential new ways of understanding both their job and their role in society. This study uses a combination of case studies and Q methodology to explore how journalists see technological changes affecting them. The results indicate that few journalists have much knowledge of interactive media, and even fewer perceive new delivery mechanisms as having a fundamental effect on the things that are important to them: gathering information, interpreting it and shaping it into a meaningful story. Their message can perhaps be summed up in the idea that "It's the content, stupid!" And the content, most believe, is the same no matter how it reaches the reader. Although some are excited about various aspects of interactive media and some are fearful, most are taking a laissez-faire approach. They support their employers' exploration of new ways of getting information out, but see that exploration as having very little to do with them. It is suggested that such a view, while commendable in its adherence to the values of "good journalism," may be inadequate to meet the challenges of a world of exponentially expanding information
