I wasn't replying directly to you, stoneycreek, but rather to the oft-repeated notion that the comments you link to articulate, that it is somehow the publishing of articles written by people without journalism degrees that has lead to the decline of journalistic standards, rather than the preceding decades of consolidation and cost cutting in the industry.

It's pretty clear that the media damaged their own credibility long before the rise of the citizen journalist. This has created fear and uncertainty in the media landscape, and for many, the citizen journalist is a convenient scapegoat.
