The Jeff Gannon Scandal and the Blogosphere

Stephen Downes, NewsTrolls, Mar 04, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Don't worry, this article is not about Jeff Gannon. Rather, ti deals with changing trends in jorunalism. We are moving from an era in which people pay to read (or consume) content to an era in which people pay to produce content. And this has as a consequence a transfer of infleunce over the medium from those who adhere (at least ostensively) to a principle of journalistic integrity to those who can afford to pay for coverage. I raise many of the points I raise in Community B,ogging, but in a more accessible manner. Discussion on the Online News list is covered by Douglas Fisher.
