Everybody's fed to the teeth with this discussion of "Is the Internet killing journalism (or has it been slowly dying since the '20s)?!?" and "How will social media/the iPad/global warming save journalism?!?"
So here's two different thoughts. First: The Internet is BECOMING journalism -- a thesis clearly laid out by no less an authority than Gawker, which explains that in the age of people trading links on Facebook and Twitter, your items have to have speed, brevity, clarity and accuracy, or you're going to get your pants beaten off. Oh, and good headlines, too.
This is shockingly similar to the conditions that produced Journalism 1.0. (Read here about how inverted pyramid style came about upon the death of Abraham Lincoln and avoiding bias came from the telegraph and the Civil War.)
Second: Somebody finally found out what CQ stands for. No lie. Read all about it!
Thanks to @scottmladd, whose tweet about the first item led me to the second.
