Statistics and perspectives on the decline in newspaper coverage of the arts
Posted on January 8, 2017 in Articles, Criticism in Controversy 0 Comments
The Columbia Journalism Review has published a thought provoking piece by Boston’s Jeb Gottlieb, former music and theater writer for the Boston Herald. In a section he titled “the end of the age of the critic” Gottlieb provides statistics on the decline of full time paid positions in the newspaper business for arts critics. He then discusses the ramifications of the decline not just for the displaced critics, but for the society at large in a section he titles “what is lost.” The piece can be read here: Curtains fall on arts critics at newspapers.
