Patrick Gavin talked about the increasing use and impact of Internet news sites, such as Politico.com, on television news. He commented on a variety of Web site postings, including those of the Wall Street Journal, NBC News, InfoWars, and TheBlaze. He said that the ultimate goal for many sites is to make a profit by adding value to the site, increasing Web hits, and selling additional advertising, adding that online news organizations must balance profit against such production costs as staff and studio time. He also discussed the effects of the constant to update on a journalist’s time, which he believes may cause some reporters to “burn out” earlier in their careers. close
