Thank lord the drunkenness is gone

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 think the playing field is leveled, the nepotism has dwindled, the drunkenness is gone… I mean the [industry] used to be a madcap operation!Now, to have purged that is sublime.

…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.
