The Free Press is More Expensive Than You Think.

Interesting reading. I get this weird feeling in my gut, though, when people talk about blog business models, given the state of the mainstream media (as I perceive it).

It seems the mainstream media crossed a line sometime back. It was one thing to make a paid career out of researching the news or reporting it, and I guess big mdeia has always been powerful in influencing society as its owners like, but what I perceived as prior honor and ethics seem to be gone, or overshadowed by the scandals.

I may have missed your commentary on the White House paid columnists (old news now, I guess) - or perhaps such practices only look very wrong from outside the press?
