Jay Rosen ruminates: Four things ‘I think I know about journalism’

As his 25 year anniversary as a journalism professor for New York University looms, press critic and thought leader Jay Rosen has boiled down everything he has learned to four basic ideas:

1. The more people who participate in the press the stronger it will be.
2. The profession of journalism went awry when it began to adopt the View from Nowhere.
3. The news system will improve when it is made more useful to people.
4. Making facts public does not a public make; information alone will not inform us.

He elaborates and analyzes these points on his Press Think website.
