P.S. first email i've recieved on this list for months. We should

DIY journalism is not a real alternative

"The ease with which a blog or a news site can be set up fuels the
myth that citizen journalism is free of constraints. However, the most
popular sites aren't owned and controlled by altruistic charities
intent on spreading free speech. They're controlled by entities that
are driven by profit."
Well, we might not be one of the most popular sites, but "altruistic
charities intent on spreading free speech" - sounds pretty close! :)
Wonder if he's aware of Wikinews?
