From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I stronly disagree with the need to "reinvent journalism". Appears to be another way to exercise increased government control. This country was founded on Christian principles and small government whose purpose should be to protect the rights of the people to PROVIDE for THEMSELVES. What is there to reinvent? If politicians and government officials are doing right by the people; i.e. protecting their rights and allowing them the freedom to provide for themselves, they should be able to withstand the criticism that comes from journalists via the freedom of speech rights we all have. If they cannot handle the criticism they should leave!
