Will the coming age news be better than the old?

May 2009
Prospect;May2009, Issue 158, p26
The article offers a debate on the future of news between Steven Johnson, author of the book "The Invention of Air" and Paul Starr, Princeton University professor and co-editor of the magazine "The American Prospect." Johnson states that news during the 2008 U.S. presidential election was far superior to that of 1992 and that blogs contribute to the variety of news available. Starr responds with concern over the state of state and local news coverage.
