Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
If Robert Gammon is using himself as an example of the writing that will be challenged... the sooner the better. Even his current post is alarming in its lack of insight. His outlook seems to be that readers in the Bay Area are so bereft of interest in quality journalism that they will flock to mediocre student writers. He is wrong. However, readers will flock to well crafted and insightful journalism... student or not.
He continues with unfounded speculation that local news organizations will contract because they can't compete with free writers. They can compete with better writing, better stories, better coverage. Thank you Warren for providing us with a choice. Rather than looking toward a new reason for better journalism, new journalistic collaborations, and a better informed community, Robert would have us reading his sometimes erroneous articles.... and paying him for it. Lets give it a try Robert, rise to the challenge rather than shudder at the unknown.
