Journalism Still Matters

Nice piece by SFGate’s David Wiegand on CBS News’ Scott Pelley, well worth a few minutes of your time.

“I think people are being driven to brand names in journalism that they feel like they can trust,” he said. “Because never in human history has so much information been available to so many people, but unfortunately that also means that never in human history has so much bad information been available to so many people.”

So well stated, Mr. Pelley.
