Jeff Bercovici reports on the changing landscape of journalism:
The basic structure of how news gets made is changing. Institutions, experience and credentials are less important than they used to be; networks, individual enterprise and personal “brands” are far more so. To new-media utopians like Jay Rosen and Jeff Jarvis, this shift — away from journalism schools and newsroom hierarchies, toward empowered citizen bloggers and crowdsourced reporting — is an unmitigated good. And sometimes it is good.
