Stop The Presses

"...each book squats on a different corner of the ideological triangle that has defined the debate over the future of news. Keen takes one side, angrily lambasting today's online 'citizen journalists'; Gant takes the opposite corner, extolling these amateurs; and Henry takes the middle corner floating gracefully above the two others, and not just because he has staked out the middle ground."

- Todd Oppenheimer considers three books that discuss the future of journalism in the age of the Internet. (They are American Carnival: Journalism Under Siege in an Age of New Media by Neil Henry; We're All Journalists Now: The Transformation of the Press and Reshaping of the Law in the Internet Age by Scott Gant; and The Cult of the Amateur: How Today's Internet Is Killing Our Culture by Andrew Keen.)
