The delay economy of “continuity” and the emerging impatience culture of the digital era

( Scannell, 1996 : 14). In this way, continuity is probably a fundamental component of the qualities of the “taken-for-granted-ness” and “dailiness” of television, as Scannell argued (1996: 9, 144).

Disrupting journalism from scratch
Outlining the figure of the entrepreneur–journalist in four French pure players

and evolving context in which they work. Regardless of whether these pure players will survive, these journalists have developed new competences that could open up new professional opportunities. Conclusion In an increasingly precarious professional context ( Frisque et al., 2011 ), creating one’s own medium is a way of attempting to regain control over the journalistic environment and reaffirm the classic professional values: independence and autonomy.
