“Old Growth Media and the Future of News”

I’m trying to find a selection to quote from this piece by Steven Berlin Johnson, but I can’t, so I’ll just tell you to read the whole thing.

I’m significantly less bullish than he is about the future development of hard news journalism online, particularly because I don’t trust the general public to necessarily seek out the best journalism online. Instead, I’m afraid they’ll look at what Nick Kristof calls The Daily Me, where most people will seek out information that either conforms to their biases or is hyper-local or fulfills one super-specific niche.
