Abstract: The vast majority of newspaper editors world-wide are optimistic about the future of their newspapers, according to a global survey that provides an insider’s view to newsroom attitudes and strategies.
The “Newsroom Barometer,” conducted by Zogby International for the Paris-based World Editors Forum and Reuters , found that 85 percent of editors are very optimistic or somewhat optimistic about the future of their newspapers.
The survey found that:
– 40 percent of editors believe on-line will be the most common way to read the news ten years from now;
– 35 percent believe print will reign supreme;
– two-thirds believe opinion and analysis pages will grow in importance;
– half are convinced that the quality of journalism will improve;
– half believe that shareholders and advertisers present threats to editorial independence.
