Although there are excellent bloggers out there, the vast majority of blogs are more than an arm lengths distance from printed media when it comes to quality. Established journalists have the benefits of sitting on a knowledge bank of experience, not to mention access to researchers digging for information that makes a written piece extraordinary. Therefore we should not disregard traditional media as it's still a pinnacle source for exemplary presentation of news.
i was not talking about bloggers !
i was talking about the internet as a 'placebo' for traditional newspapers.
in France, we kind of know a daily newspapers crisis ... a lot of journalists now work on the internet.
what I was saying is that internet allows a large space to express yourself - when you write for a daily newspaper you have an amount of words, a format etc. internet doesn't ....
and it seems that traditional journalists don't really know how to use this new medium, yet.
and for instance, Horyn has a blog ... IMO, she could really express herself on more than 1 page ... and develop her arguments, her theories (if she has some etc.)
but my problem is certainly that i do parallel btw arts, theater and cinema critics with fashion critics.
not saying the amount of words is making the quality (sometimes, def. not !) just saying it's a place where you can go further. and some people don't use it this way !
