This epilogue argues that time matters in journalism’s operation but is not sufficiently considered in its study. It focuses on the temporal expectations associated with the digital environment, highlighting problems with an overemphasis on the present in studies of news production, a lack of temporality in discussions of news engagement, and a failure to consider the temporal depletion associated with journalism’s future.
