Jarvis reports on a comment by Gavin O’Reilly made at a World Association of Newspapers event recently:
I think participative journalism is a dangerous precedent for our industry. People forget that newspapers have always been an interactive medium, people have always been able to interact with us through the mailbag.
This was in response to a question from the floor, slightly goes against what his his speech where he talks about the Internet being an integral part of their business. Perhaps he means people can email email@example.com
Surprised nobody in the irishblogs picked this up. Or even the real Gavin. 🙂
