"A rare moment of clarity came from Keith Kelly of the NY Post, who reminded his peers that despite their “high and mighty and noble” misconceptions, newspapers were created to sell ads, not serve the public. In true Murdochian style he urged everyone to remember that print “was an ad-driven vehicle at its inception…it was a vehicle for commerce.”"

About Me

I'm @jihiitea.

Curious about news literacy, networked communication, journalism ethics, news design, storytelling, spirituality, and how they all connect. Here is where I meander through the internet.

Most of my blogging about media is over at the Future Journalism Project. Work & Projects are here.
