Comments: Froomkin gets testy

Could there be hope for the press after all?

No.

Most people in this country will never see even the print edition of the WaPo, let alone the electronic page you link to.

Until we find a way to reach the main lode of ordinary people in this country, we're just fooling ourselves that we will defeat these criminals in our lifetimes.

We have to change something in the electronic media -- the ordinary broadcast television and radio -- or else figure out how to "go around" those major media outlets.

I'm with Ralph. The corporate media is more 'entertainment' than hard news. I thing Left Blogstonia is the way to 'go around' the media. Don't you think the pols read the blogs, the big ones anyway? The media sure does. Let's see what happens with Howard Dean as DNC chair. He knows how to use the internets to get the message out. I also think Bush is shooting himself in the foot with Social Security and we might see good things happen in the Congress in '06 because of it.

I should have ended that sentence with the parenthetical: "(he said plaintively)."
