'Citizen journalists' in media's future?

Back in June, Plain Dealer Columnist Sam Fulwood III stated: "I raised the question last week of whether newspapers are outmoded, like buggy whips.

"I fretted that young people seem to prefer pixilated communications over traditional ink-on-paper and asked readers to share their opinions. Most of the more than 500 people who responded by e-mail, letter or phone agreed with me...that the Internet can't compare to a well-reported and carefully edited paper."

Fulwood's piece examines the role of homegrown neighborhood journalists in this era of the blogger.

Interesting perspective.
