My research led to many ideas and concepts about the news and media industry that I had never considered. The use of the internet has provided news and media outlets with powerful tools for creation and distribution of content that has given the news sources a chance to reach a new audience or target a more specific one. They are able to create content that is more explicit, controversial, and unique because of the lack of restrictions. People will seek the content they want to hear, and if they can not find it, they have the opportunity to make it themselves. Anyone can be a reporter, but not all who report news are journalists. This may upset some professional journalists, but they can choose to be upset, or join in on social media too. The contrast between those who accept the internet into journalism and those who abhor it has been very interesting to see. It is not entirely because of age difference, but more likely an issue of pride. While some would like to see technology prosper, others would like to see it removed from the field. I can conclude that the internet has greatly changed the media and reporting industry as a whole. It has changed the way people view the media and demand information. It has given those without a voice a chance to tell their story, even if it is to the dismay of the professionals. It has broadened the scope of information, but also divided and isolated people. The creation of the internet has shaken the world of news media to its core and will never go back.
