From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I believe that the news organizations need to, on their own, find a method that will be competative with other more progressive forms of media. As in any industry, when a better product comes on the market, the public will move to that product. The products that came before will have to keep up with the progress and innovation or drop out of the market. The consumer and the free marketplace will determine which method of information gathering, and/or the type of media they prefer. Leave it alone and let the free market dictate. NO BAIL-OUTS. I cannot affort to pay anyone elses bills.
