For the journalists who have not yet discovered the personal computer as a reporting and information gathering tool, it is probably not a matter of technophobia. It is more likely a matter of not being given the chance to learn about computers. Tom Koch said the role of the news media in a democratic society is changing and how journalists use online services will have an impact on society, politics, and culture. To become computer skilled, journalists must experience each of the three levels of computer literacy. The levels include individuals feeling at ease with a computer, feeling confident with a computer, and liking the computer. In terms of using the computer, Bill Dedman said journalists should be able to maneuver around the hard disk, share compressed files with others, use a spreadsheet to enter data, make calculations, sort information, and chart information.
