Reporting is not quite dead yet, it’s just mutating.

Most of you are probably aware there’s a tight Republican primary fight in Alaska, between a Palin-backed Tea Partier and a RINO.  You’re probably aware because theothermccain is currently the source for most of my hits.

Anyway, ‘Bama boy Stacy is currently in Alaska, where’s he’s reporting the heck out of the situation.  

Note the updates.  Twelve, by my count.  How do you report like that in a newspaper, with bi-hourly editions?  How about televised news?  Constantly interrupt other shows?

Has any medium ever been more suitable for reporting than internet blogging?  This would be the Platinum Age of news, if only we had reporters instead of journalists.  

Maybe it’s time to get humans out of the business entirely.

I've accepted that all of you are socially superior to me. But no pretending that any of you are rational.
