The Press

So what if “everybody’s doing it”?

Scott Rosenberg:

...Before the critiques gets too self-righteous, let’s recall that the blurring of editorial and business lines is happening everywhere.  Magazine journalism is full of it.  We will see even more of it as the business of print publishing continues to decay and publishers scramble for revenue.  The Post’s “salons” aren’t the first instance of this kind of aggressive monetization of a journalistic reputation, and they won’t be the last.
Let me know how well that argument works the next time you’re handed a speeding ticket.
