What is Journalism? By the LA Times

What is journalism? As a jour major, I'm interested to see how you'd define the term in an era where the news scene seems to evolve by the second. Thanks!
It’s a great (if philosophical) question.
Journalism is evolving — you are right about that. The technology is more complicated and some of the technologies make the content come at us faster and sometimes in greater amounts. And yet, in the end, people have always sought good stories to read and to write, so that’s the same as it ever was. 
In short, pageview, pixel or paper — it’s good storytelling.
