Emerging Obstacles for Print Journalism
Matthew Yglesias has a piece on the recent George Will mini-scandal that pertains to what we've been discussing. He views the effects of increased competition newspapers face as a good thing (not a surprising POV for a blogger) because of the increased accountability they face. This comes from multiple angles. First, there is the increase in available options for consumers, which is what he discusses. Newspapers also must deal with the internet as a public forum where dissenting views, such as Yglesias's can be heard.
