Editors’ Weblog: Yahoo! UK editor Simon Hinde says ““Young people are leaving newspapers in droves because print news isn’t trustworthy. It’s vanity on the part of newspapers to push a particular political view. Facts are distorted to fit a particular view of the world and they don’t give a dispassionate view of events. Niche subjects are very well covered online because of semi-professional commentary. There are now mechanisms for blogs to be monetised and that is opening up a whole range of possibilities.”
I’m eager to see reaction to this one. Is Hinde too far away to get blasted by the folks who said LATime’s wikipedia was a failure–or will the long arm reach out?
