From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
THE FUTURE OF JOURNALISM IS EXACTLY WHERE IT SHOULD BE WHEN YOU HAVE A FREE PRESS IN A CAPITALISTIC SOCIETY! THERE IS NO NEED TO CHANGE JOURNALISM; JUST BECAUSE THE LIBERALS CAN'T PUT UP A TALK SHOW THAT PEOPLE WANT TO LISTEN TO! PERHAPS IT'S THE MESSAGE; OR THE HOST; OR MAYBE IT'S THAT THE LIBERALS ALREADY HAVE CONTROL OF THE "MAINSTREAM" MEDIA AND THE FOLKS ARE ALREADY SATURATED WITH LIBERAL AGENDA; AND WANT TO HEAR THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY. HEY, THERE'S AN IDEA FOR THE FUTURE OF JOURNALISM! HAVE THE EXISTING MEDIA DO THEIR JOBS; AND GIVE UNBIASED REPORTS OF ALL SIDES OF AN ISSUE! YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHANGE JOURNALISM BY ESTABLISHING A GOVERNMENT RUN PRESS CORP AND STIFLING FREE SPEECH! ALL THAT IS NECESSARY IS A FREE PRESS (MEDIA) THAT WILL DO IT'S INTENDED JOB; AND BE THE "EYES AND EARS" OF THE PEOPLE; CONSTANTLY WATCHING OVER THE GOVERNMENT. THE MEDIA WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE THE PROPAGANDA ARM OF THE ADMINISTRATION; AND THAT IS THE ONLY CHANGE THAT NEEDS TO BE MADE TO JOURNALISM!
