Abstract

This is the introductory essay in the "I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society" symposium on the future of online journalism. It argues that, notwithstanding the innovative journalism practices enabled by digital technologies, market-driven online enterprises alone will prove insufficient to provide local communities the accountability journalism they need in order for democracy to thrive.

Keywords: democracy, journalism, new media, public goods
