This story first appeared in the July 6 issue of The Atlantic magazine.

The Atlantic’s editors have a simple message: “The Press is the public’s business.
But there’s more than one way to approach this question.
It’s also a question of how to approach journalism in the 21st century.
For all of the media’s focus on digital technology and social media, the press is more important today than ever.
And it’s no accident that the press has been on the defensive as its most important reporting has been disrupted by social media.
While some media outlets have become more transparent about who their advertisers are and how much money they are making from them, there is still no clear picture of how well press organizations actually work.
For many journalists, the answer is: They don’t.
“We can be the best-paid journalists in the world, but I can’t guarantee you that if you’re the best at your job that you’ll actually get paid the best,” says Robert McChesney, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the former director of communications for former President Bill Clinton.
“And that’s the problem with a profession that has been defined for so long by the ability to get paid what you think you should get paid.”
To put this in context, the average pay for a journalist in 2016 was $125,000, according to a survey from PayScale, a website that compiles pay data.
That’s $15,000 more than the average salary for an average executive editor, and $8,000 above the national average for a nonfiction writer.
While many of the top-paying outlets have moved away from a reliance on traditional sources, the industry as a whole has remained steadfast in its belief that the role of the press, and the profession as a business, is critical to the American dream.
The Press is a business that is driven by profit The business model of the national press is a model that many journalists consider essential to their success.
As such, the idea of a news organization as a “public good” is central to their thinking.
But in this view, the media is a nonprofit entity whose primary responsibility is to report the news to the public.
While this notion is often accepted, it has many critics, including the National Association of Broadcasters, which has repeatedly called for a complete overhaul of the way the media operates.
In a recent statement, the group said it “does not support the notion that the media should be a public good.”
But it also argued that “the public is better served by the existence of a marketplace of information and the ability for independent voices to reach audiences,” as well as by “government’s ability to provide incentives for the creation of news and information.”
For its part, the National Press Club, which represents reporters, says it is committed to preserving “the critical role of our profession.”
“As the first media organization to embrace and embrace its role as the public good, the national media is the only institution in our profession that truly understands and cherishes the role and role of a journalist as a public interest advocate,” says the club’s vice president, Kevin Harris.
But what happens when journalists lose the ability or desire to make a living in this role?
How does a newsroom that is increasingly reliant on social media suddenly have to find another source of income?
This is where the role can be made more complicated.
The idea of the “press” in the media world is so firmly ingrained that it’s impossible to imagine a time when that idea will change.
When the first newsrooms opened in the 19th century, they were staffed primarily by men.
Today, most newsrooms are staffed by women, though some have grown up around male journalists.
And a significant percentage of the nation’s journalists now are female.
But as more and more people become part of the workforce and demand more independence from their bosses, the “public interest” is going to increasingly become the new “business.”
And as journalists become more involved in online communities and other digital ventures, the job is going be increasingly inextricably intertwined with social media as well.
And as the role becomes more of a “business” with more and bigger stakes than just making money, the role will be increasingly tied to what the “media” actually does.
“As we have seen with Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram, the news is not just consumed by the public,” says Marcia Hofmann, a journalism professor at Columbia University and author of the forthcoming book The First People’s History of Journalism.
“It’s also consumed by some of the most powerful and powerful people in the country.”
This isn’t to say that journalism isn’t still important to the community.
“The public interest is what we do,” says David Lipsky, a former president of the Society of Professional Journalists.
“But the public interest doesn’t necessarily need to be the dominant part of our job description.”
But the way in which
