From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Re-inventing journalism?? It has already been "re-invented", as you yourselves know very well. The new journalism is electronic and unfettered, not paper-based. Attempts to place out-dated journalism concepts on life-support are very much like trying to save the blacksmith and carriage industries following the advent of the automobile. This is America, not Venezuela. Keep your meddling hands (and taxes) off the media and let natural selection follow its course. There is nothing "fair" about the "fairness doctrine".
