Dropshipping journalism: no one who works at Newsweek can tell me why it still exists

Daniel Tovrov, Columbia Journalism Review

"'The owners see media as a profitable thing, but it’s profitable because they’ve found an exploitable workforce. There are so many young, earnest, hungry writers who will work for so little,' says Sydney Pereira, who covered climate change for Newsweek until March of last year. 'We’re digging the owners out of debt at the expense of our mental health.'"

If you need immediate help, please chat with a librarian.

What I can do in a consultation:

  • Help you find sources for your project
  • Help you brainstorm research strategies
  • Help you set up a citation manager
  • Help you access online materials
  • Help you request items through Interlibrary Loan

What I can't do in a consultation:

  • Proofread your paper (visit the Writing Center!)
  • Help you choose a topic or verify that your topic is "good" (talk to your instructor!)
  • Find sources for you (that's your job!)

Bottom line: while I am here to support your research process and help you navigate the library, I am not a substitute for your instructor. Questions about assignment requirements, grading, acceptable sources, acceptable topics and deadlines should be directed to your professor or TA.
