A journalism lecturer ex-colleague of mine tells me that one of his students accepts the need to learn about new media, video and podcasts etc. But told him she had actually gone into journalism because she wanted to write stories. How refreshing.
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
