but took the opposite argument and said stuff like the media has always had a sizeable interest in 'rubbish' and things like celebrity, technology has just increased our exposure to it. improved technology has ensured that anything we are interested in is now immediately accessible and allows us to engage with a multitude of our interests without a fear of conflict or reproach. also talked about the role of new media and how immediate they can be in contrast to the traditional media routes which are losing the ability to recruit or pay staff to investigate things properly but that role is being taken up by the bloggers etc whose very existence - for the good ones anyway - depends on chasing up the details and inviting debate. the return of the 'community journalist' even if that community now skims the globe and may be slightly myopic in viewpoint. what constitutes 'news'? becoming a much broader and yet individually specific term and defines anything which we personally find newsworthy. people are complex beings who enjoy engaging with all kinds of information; i read perez hilton but i also read the economist etc.The media produces only rubbish and we are drowning in it essay.
