We the Media (Intro, Ch. 1 and Ch. 2)

In the beginning chapters of We the Media, Dan Gillmor reflects on the journalistic changes our culture has undergone, and begins a debate between online journalism and print journalism.

While my experience blogging has given me new respect for web-based reporting, I am still distrustful of it as a completely reliable source, primarily because it is so accessible to so many people. I'm sure as time progresses and the market develops, online journalism will become more and more reliable and be turned to much more frequently than print journalism. Why do I think this? Our culture is getting progressively lazier and it takes less energy to read the news while at the computer than it is to pick up a paper.
