FUTURE: "Age of Media Arrogance is Over": William Powers
ORIGINAL POST AT 9:57:08 AM, Oct. 28, 2005
The real lesson of NYT scandal isn't that the media are evil
"It's that the Age of Media Arrogance is over," says William Powers. "The
news culture is under the public's thumb. It is more transparent, more
answerable for its mistakes, and more likely than ever to clean up its
act." The news business has gone from operating as a kind of private club
to behaving more like a public utility in which every news consumer is a
stockholder, says Powers.
