|GENRE DEVELOPMENT IN ONLINE JOURNALISM AND THE SUBJECTIVE IMPLICATIONS OF MEDIA ENGAGEMENT|
|Written by GEORGE LAZAROIU|
ABSTRACT. Wartella et al. state that closing the digital divide will depend less on technology and more on providing the skills and content that is most beneficial. Steensen notes that although online journalism is still dominated by breaking news coverage, new genres are emerging that differentiate it more and more from old media journalism.
