An Excerpt from

CUNY professor and long-time Nieman Lab contributor C.W. Anderson is out with a new book, Rebuilding the News: Metropolitan Journalism in the Digital Age. This is a book well worth a look — it might very well augment some of the material in Chs. 3 and 5 of Principles of American Journalism.

The subject of his book is, fundamentally, why news organizations responded so poorly to the disruptions of the Internet — or, as he puts it, a “study of the legacy systems that made the news organizations I studied behave in deeply irrational ways.”

Niemanlab.org has an excerpt here.
