The coming collapse and rebirth of newspaper journalism

“There will be hand-wringing over fears of libel suits and other litigation. It is going to be an unholy brawl.”

Here is an interesting blog entry by Paul Gillin about the demise and the resurrection journalism as we know it.  We are definitely seeing the consolidation of newpapers now, but I’m not so sure about the rise of blogging as legitimate journalism nor do I think that legitimate news agencies will do away with editting and fact checking in favor of letting the masses do.  I also, now, believe there is a place for paper in places where there will not be any electronic equivalent for a while.  Anyhow, this blog is an interesting read.
