Al Gore on the news media

Al gore has given a talk suggesting that the traditional news media are no longer functioning in a manner consistent with democracy. He feels interaction is missing, and hopes the Internet will provide that. You can read the text of the speech here.

You can can listen to the speech or watch video highlights at Andy Carvin's blog.

If you watch the video highlights, you will see the talk being blogged by an audience member as it occurs. That is an example of "citizen journalism."

  1. I guess Al Gore have issues on news media. He can stop hoping because the Internet has already been interacting with news media. Internet is for the people who pay for the services. If its AOL, MSN, Verizon and Comcast, etc.
