Can we still speak about the profession of journalism? Job or profession, does it still have a raison d'être? Is it about a change, or a mere renovation and update of its tasks? If so, which are the professional profiles that the net, the digital environment, the time of global information and broadcasting at a planetary scale, are now requiring? Has the higher profile of social networks, and the inevitable change of personal, professional and social behaviours that it has brought about, substituted the public space that the media once represented? Has the world of the Internet, paraphrasing Habermas, replaced the world of life? From real to virtual?
Has anyone in the enterprise world questioned the consequences of having converted the journalist into a mere supplier of contents?

These are all questions to which there are not yet answers.

In this report we attempt to find some possible answers, analyse and assess them, and provide arguments. We do this without prejudice to the fact that time may well come upon us to substantiate or on the contrary prove wrong the reasons today given.

To do so, we have undertaken four Focus Group and some twenty in depth interviews with professionals of long standing journalistic experience. We have also carried out a survey with 133 professionals in charge of digital editions, with or without a link to any other type of traditional platform. Most of these are young professionals without any experience in the traditional media. We have obtained a response rate of 45,1%.
