Citizen media is worthless and mundane; Big Media misses what needs to be said and panders to advertisers; Digg promotes group-think.
The piece only has a few good sentences:
For local insight, I'd suggest a list of local bloggers—and note that most bloggers call themselves bloggers, not journalists. There is no pretense.Which any of us who actually does blog would obviously agree with.
Citizen journalism, to me, is like citizen professional baseball—it's just not practical. You can't play professional baseball just because you think the Seattle Mariners stink. You're not a good enough ballplayer.Which is also just a nicely worded tid-bit of common sense.
Don't even read the article. It's not worth your time. Go check Google News instead.
