Talk Politics
“As a paid blogger for an MSM paper, I think [the blogging/journalism] convergence is already happening,” says News & Observer “Under the Dome” blogger Ryan Teague Beckwith. “As William Gibson famously said, the future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed. Over time, I think papers will learn to be more immediate, more chatty and more transparent, while bloggers will learn to be more rigorously sourced, more fair and more objective.”
