TV news is killing itself. Probably because it is more focused on entertainment and image than reporting.

I am not afraid of a future where news is reported by people who actually witness it...


I AM afraid of news from people who manipulate it.

And then there is the opportunity to use the new technology to compete effectively with the traditional media.

In response to the column linked above i got a message from someone who is actively challenging the status quo.
