Citizen Journalism BRIEF + HST

I was talking on the phone with Zennie last night & he thinks positively of the rise of citizen journalists. The only reason I disagree with that is the same reason I don't think that a blogger is a journalist. I would prefer the term to be "citizen blogger" if anything.

Poynter Online has an interesting read.

Go read that.

I'll elaborate on this at a later time. I apologize for not spending as much time with The Future of Journalism. I assure you I have bigger and better things in store. I am going to put to rest the "WORD OF THE WEEK," and resurrect "JOURNALISM 101."

You'll see what I mean in a few minutes.

I'm currently reading Hey Rube by Hunter S. Thompson. I have already read this book, but I like reading it multiple times.
I would like to share with you the list of Hunter S. Thompson books I own.
The first HST book I ever read was Fear and Loathing in America, which was given to me from my Journalism advisor, Dan Singer, my senior year of high school. He told me that he picked that book for me for a specific reason. He put a bookmark in a specific place and said that the particular passage/letter where the bookmark was represented part of why that book was perfect for me. He took a lot of time to think of books for The Tide's executive staff (I was Managing Editor). I can say that today I do understand why he chose that book specifically for me. I reference and read through Fear and Loathing in America on a daily basis - I always have that book close (along with my AP STYLE GUIDEBOOK).
Anyway, the list of all HST books I own:

Hey Rube
Better Than Sex
Fear and Loathing in America
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Generation of Swine
Hell's Angels
Rum Diary
The Great Shark Hunt
Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72.
Songs of the Doomed
The Proud Highway
