The World of Citizen Journalism

Bill Thompson has written an interesting piece on the BBC website about how blogging has changed the very nature of traditional journalism.

Bill asserts that it is not bloggers that are leading to the loss of faith in traditional journalists. It is the decline of traditional journalism that is the problem. Journalists, Bill surmises, need to re-connect with the readers. Instead of the old approach of one way communication, journalists need to interact with readers and not shun blogs.

This leads very nicely to the next entry. As Oscar Wilde quipped "the truth is rarely pure and never simple" and the Bloggers - Guardians of Truth piece I wrote seems to be a case of this.

So please get back for the next entry because it promises to be quite a revelation -
I am quite serious on this point.
