Digital media is reshaping the news business in a zillion positive ways. More people have more access to more information faster -- by orders of magnitude -- than 20 years ago. Anyone can become a practitioner too: Just open up WordPress and shoot! All of this engenders transparency and democratization, and who's not for that? Still, I wonder if anything is lost in this reordering. Some say unequivocally no. Or they might say, "If you count the metaphorical buggy-whip manufacturers going out of business, they lose, but that's it." I think the answer is more nuanced.
