Quote of the day, Aug. 9

Mitchell Stephens, from “Beyond News: The Case for Wisdom Journalism” (2009)

“Mere stenographic recording of great, public events has lost much of its value. Probably the Associated Press, Reuters 3 and a few additional news organizations will be able to make a go of supplying written or video accounts of such events to websites fast and in bulk. However, it is difficult to see many others basing a business model on the fruits of such run‐ of‐the‐mill reporting. Journalists need to sell something else.”
