Today’s Journalism Draining Journalists
Journalism’s always been a pressurized profession, but today it may be draining journalists more than satisfying them. This, of course, can be ominous for PR practitioners as they seek to cultivate press contacts. “It is rare,” writes Erica Berger on Quartz, “that we discuss what online media in particular is doing to journalists, writers, and editors in the fast-moving digital age.”

It’s wearing them out, she contends, with very little professional satisfaction. What could be more ominous for the professional setting in which PR people function than dispirited channels of information? Consider the implications of this “burnout” time  for journalists by  pondering Ms. Berger’s worrisome post. 

This radiotimes.com reflection on journalism via the movie Spotlight and the Boston Globe illustrates the dispiriting problem further.
