A concept hard to get

It's no wonder journalists are struggling with how to deal with maintaining a print product while also working in new media. Even the best thinkers in journalism are at cross purposes sometimes.

Witness the column Ed Wasserman wrote for the Miami Herald this week, claiming 'convergence' is ruining newsrooms, and the reaction from Herald Editor Tom Fiedler, who has recently come out as an advocate of giving equal effort to the online and other media products of newspapers. Fascinating stuff, including another response to the Romenesko posting from a long-time journalist who says 'convergence' has always been there.
