To Bob Garfield, the digital revolution means the end of the journalism business as he and others long have practiced it and benefited from it. The co-host of the NPR program On the Media spoke with Tom Weber this week as part of the MPR Broadcast Journalist Series.
"Now, everybody has the ability to produce and distribute content with their phones," he told Weber. "And that means there is no more scarcity. ... everybody has the ability to do what Rupert Murdoch does, and what William Randolph Hearst did. Everybody has CBS in their pockets."
The Daily Circuit airs the conversation.
