We The Media (Intro, Ch. 1-2)

"The news is what we make of it, in more ways than one."

I like this idea. When the author is talking about how he checked various sources and pieced together his own version of the 2000 election controversy, I took it to heart. With bloggers like Matt Drudge constantly choosing a variety of news sources, and even mediums, both local and international angles can be covered.

The book is aptly titled, because we (the people) really are the media now. With the advent of weblogs and easily accessible and changable HTML, we can choose what makes news. We, without corporate agenda, are able to create our own news, expose scandals, and be activists-- all from home.

I like where this book is going-- and the mental doors it opens.
