Abstract

Journalist are either found riding the way of disruptive technology, or are struggling to thwart away any associations with algorithms or automated generated news. On analyzing the scale of benefit of both approaches, the former is seen as being colossally more beneficial. Algorithms are capable of working on any news potentially in a move quicker and cost-effective manner. Drones also provide compelling advantage for news gatherers. Cryptocurrency and Cloud technology are harboring trust between readers and publishers. But, in the midst of the rise of disruptive technology, it presents both potentials and pitfalls for news organizations. But this paper argues that disruptive technology does not necessarily disturb but complements the objectives that is being achieved by media houses. With the apprehension in the air, the need of the hour is to have the right dialogue, which question; how policy framers should address disruptive technology in this industry. The article begins with the nature on which technology and journalism co-exist and how they are constantly evolving. It concludes by endorsing the need to have adaptive laws (like soft laws) for an emerging cognitive journalism, instead, of dampening the progression of innovations in the field of journalism with hard laws.
