Entrepreneurial journalism is a new paradigm, one that challenges longstanding beliefs about journalists' self-identity and autonomy by teaching and encouraging graduate students and working journalists to start their own businesses, whether online or in print. This new paradigm also forces academe to reconsider traditional methods in how to prepare students for a career. These changes are happening at a time when the news industry is grappling with a seismic shift in how information is delivered and financially supported. On the surface, it seems the new way of thinking by, and about, journalists and academe represents a radical departure from norms that have guided both groups since the late 1800s. However, journalists need not sacrifice core values of independence, truth-telling and impartiality if they choose to become business owners. Entrepreneurial journalism also fits within the historical context of curriculum change and debate within academe over how to adapt to new technologies.
