David Eaves has an excellent piece up today about the use of the hyperlink in journalism. He argues that online journalism that doesn’t link to other content, specifically its own sources of information and other relevant content, fails its readers.
In a similar vein, Eaves and Taylor Owen prepared a report for the Columbia Journalism Review in response to a piece by Robert Kuttner. Kuttner had argued that the “print-digital hybrid model,” where newspapers shovel their print content out through a digital platform, could save newspapers. Eaves and Owen disagreed.
