The latest snit-fit in the Senate campaign makes me wonder what we've become -- on all sides.
At the Martinsville conference, I argued that bloggers were not journalists. Rather, we were muckrakers, pamphleteers, sharp partisans, even yellow journalists, on occasion. And those aren't necessarily bad things. If anything, they were the qualities that defined "journalism" in its early days.
So I guess I was wrong. We are all Charles Foster Kanes now.
You provide the prose poetry, I'll supply the war.
