Maybe websites exist that I just haven't heard about yet. These are things I often find myself thinking about when I get online to search for good things to read and browse through, as a woman living in a highly connected technologic world in 2016.

As far as the eye can see the mountains stretches gracefully strewn with ice and snow. The otherwordly scenery is going on forever. The sky is a lucid blue. From up here, almost 7 miles above ground, the world seems wonderfully calm and forever peaceful. But nothing could be farther from the truth.

Joe Little of ABC Channel 10 News in San Diego had it right. He saw no need for media analysis when it came to Vester Flanagan, aka Bryce Williams, who murdered two people and injured a third on air as his camera rolled. He quickly sent the footage to social media.

Is the future of print grim? Maybe. But is the future of journalism, of communicating information to people, grim as well? Not by a long shot.

Back in 2011, the exclusive list was riddled with the titles: writer, editor, producer, reporter, correspondent. But by 2013, 19 out of the 30 spots were entrepreneurs -- founders or cofounders of their own companies.

I'm coming to this realization late. I've heard the complaints for decades - the paper "of record" is biased. No one claimed that The New York Times was empty and ridiculous like Fox "news."

Gawker Must Not Know What Journalism Is: A Different Take on the Role of J-schools

Gabrielle Canon | Posted 09.21.2013 | Media
Gabrielle Canon

I think a critique of J-schools is warranted. Student debt is crippling, and there aren't as many professional opportunities available in journalism. This is why these institutions must rise to the challenge and offer more than basic training or techniques for typing on the Internet.

That's why they're worth watching. And that's why I thought I'd put together a list of them.
