This seems to be more relevant now especially in the light of so many newspapers closing around the nation. But online reporting is still almost nonexistent, and the websites that do present reporting usually do so by way of linking to a traditional news organization like the NY Times or CNN. One thing that online may not be able to do is enterprise reporting or longer features while staying economically sound.

Citizen journalism, however, seems to be thriving, although not exactly on par with the quality of journalism from established news organizations. It's unfortunate that Gant doesn't present any new models or solutions, but rather a sustained argument on empowering citizen journalism.

(The rating is more like 3.5 stars than 4 due to Gant's redundant repetition of his points.)
