Old media vs. New Media

There is a fascinating post on Disloyal Opposition about bloggers who go out and get original content, not just repost stuff they find... like I usually do with "news" stuff :-) Much of the old media likes to claim that bloggers are parasitic, just reposting things they find in the old media, but that is simply not true. There are many thousands of journalists out there now who report the news but don't work for newspapers, radio or TV. They say whatever they want without any restraint by some big corporate controlled editorial board. That means it can be pretty uneven in quality and accuracy. On the other hand stories that "the man" did not want to get out now get out with speed and regularity. So, check out:
