Journalism predictions for 2018; NPR Kroc Fellowship deadline approaching

By Anna Gutierrez, SPJ Communications Department

"The open internet is today our main conduit for expression and information. It is our library, our printing press, our delivery truck and our town square. Journalists, academics, governments and local communities depend on it to connect, communicate and collaborate every day. And as old models for news and information evolve or decline, the internet presents opportunities for new and independent media outlets to emerge." -- SPJ, and more than 30 other press freedom groupssigned on to this  letter, which was sent to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai last week.

WHAT'S HAPPENING

Our friends at Nieman Lab asked influential journalists what they think is coming in the next year -- check out the predictions for journalism in 2018.

In light of the increasing sexual misconduct allegations against high-profile male journalists, the Society of Professional Journalists has compiled a list of resources for journalists everywhere. SPJ President Rebecca Baker advises journalists to demand, insist, urge and establish.

The Washington Post launched a new series to explain how journalism works in response to Poynter's Media Trust Survey.
