A Simple Resolution for traditional ways

Yes perhaps the collapse of the traditional newspaper was ominent, even foreseeable however, the closure of institutions such as the Rocky Mountain News and Seattle Post – Intelligencer still came as a shock. Equally alarming is the modern assumption that “serious journalism” looks set to disappear hand-in-hand with these metro newspapers.

In his article journalist Jonathan Weber, examines how to use the situation to ones advantage rather than surrender our life time love of the traditional print news. NewWest.net, a company in which he is heavily involved began as an experiment, however quickly became successful.  “The editorial model relies on a combination of professional journalism, what we think of as semi-professional journalism and citizen journalism” he explains.

I found this an interesting article conveying a healthy reaction the the Media Revolution. Rather than admit defeat, why not join forces to create an ultimate news medium …be it print or on-line.
