  1. This certainly looks like the best approach possible to the troubles facing the news reporting “industry.” I put industry in quotes because while in order to survive economically the news gathering/reporting organizations have to function as an industry, that “industry” has a social value that puts it apart from all others.
    The current trend to subsume news into entertainment may represent an infection in the body of our communal life more threatening in its long term consequences than ordinarily considered.
    But if in the process of mastering the skills used by the entertainment industry we are able to marry them to journalistic integrity we may be creating a new “industry” that can serve the news needs of a new generation. Let’s hope so.
