Max McGuiness on Irish Online Media

Eoin Purcell

Great piece (whatever your view) by Max McGuinesson Irish Online media over at The Dubliner Blog:

No matter how much we enjoy the smell and feel of a freshly-printed broadsheet, there is no going back; the internet genie cannot be put back in its bottle. The web has demystified journalism while mystifying editors and publishers, whose panicked response is to spout shallow technophilia and replace experienced hacks with semi-literate bloggers. It is time for the industry to stand up to the internet’s most degrading tendencies and reassert that it’s writing, not typing, which sells newspapers – erm, I mean flashing banner ads and video streams from BMW.

Well worth reading.
