reporter.jpgThis week at Pajamas Media I explore the future of reporters. One of journalists’ recurring put-downs of bloggers is that they are simply recycling someone else’s news — that there will always be a need for reporters to produce it. But, that’s just because they have lost perspective on what a reporter actually is – a middleman. On one side are news events, and on the other are audiences who want to know about them. A reporter’s job is to move “the truth” from Point A to Point B as accurately as possible. Can’t the Internet eliminate this middleman? In fact, America had a reporterless past and will likely have a reporterless future. Read all about it at Pajamas Media.
