News or not news?

Good post on Paid Content about Bill Keller’s (NYT Executive Editor) stance on news and the Internet – more specifically Google and Wikipedia as sources.  I don’t have any profound thoughts on the topic, but I do have thoughts.  There are many ways to disect this issue for sure.  But, looking at it from a generational standpoint – the younger generations out there rely on these sources for news.  They are not reading the NYT (for the most part).  So, a lot of it is about perception, not just reality.  If I could force everyone to actually READ newspapers and not rely on Google, Wikipedia and other sites, I would.  I have been talking about this for years – and not really getting anywhere.  Just something to think about.  Again, nothing new, just a thought.
