Snapshot of 21st-Century Newspapering


The future is here.

Don't believe me? Check out this story from AJR.com about Washington Post reporter Frank Ahrens who recounted his adventures covering the Enron trial for the Web, radio, TV, and the newspaper:

"It's May 25, and the verdicts are being read in the government's fraud case against former Enron Corp. executives Kenneth L. Lay and Jeffrey K. Skilling...

I am listening to the verdicts being read on CNBC with my left ear and hearing the radio host's questions in my right ear. As the verdicts are reported on TV, I repeat them on the radio. Once we reported CNBC's news on our radio station, I would begin blogging. Moments later, I would appear live on CNN Headline News in the small TV studio in the Post's newsroom just behind the CND.

At some point, hours later in this day, I would write an actual newspaper story."
