Due Tuesday, Oct. 7

Please read this short article by the NYT’s David Carr about aggregation. Follow some of the internal links, as well. Do some more research on the question of “aggregation” in journalism (its development, good and bad examples, the ethics of it, etc.).

Is aggregation good or bad for journalism? What opportunities and dangers does it present to journalists? To “citizen journalists”? To readers?

This is a very open assignment. It’s a think piece. Please focus on making a coherent, smart argument about “news aggregation” while drawing heavily and explicitly on the two readings mentioned above.
