I'm headed off to work (how inconvenient!), but I found this gem about Jeff Jarvis' appearance on CNN on Dean's World. (Doesn't that man have a job? How can he find the time to post so much, and so often?) The gist of his essay:

anyone who is a witness to news can be a reporter, because anyone and everyone has access to the press, to the Internet.

You know, it's not MSM that needs to be worried - it's the journalism schools. There's a growing body of sharp people who are competitive with trained reporters, and they work cheap. So, why spend the money for J-school?

The money quote:
JARVIS: Everyone is a Wolf Blitzer in sheep's clothing.
