Now and again I stumble on sharp skepticism toward the future of new journalism.
But others, like British veteran journalist and broadcaster Jon Snow, say that “there’s never been a more exciting time to become a journalist.” In a talk with the Frontline Club in London he says:

…I really do think that with the blogosphere, the radio… it’s possible to make a name for yourself and prevail as a result of the relatively egalitarian opportunities that now exist in the media.
