The Noisy and Prolonged Death of Journalism

December 4th, 2009 12:57 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

The war of words between the old and the new media is heating up some more. Eric Schmidt has an op-ed in Rupert Murdoch’s WSJ (ironic, that) explaining to newspapers how Google wants to, and is trying to, help them. Kara Swisher’s BoomTown column translates and deconstructs Schmidt’s argument, hilariously. A few days back, the Washington Post’s Michael Gerson became the latest journo to bemoan the death of journalism at the hands of the Internet; and investigative blogger Radley Balko quickly called B.S. on Gershon’s claim that (all?) bloggers simply steal from (all?) hard-working, honest, ethical print journalists.
