Can the blogosphere fill the void of disappearing local news coverage?

December 1, 2009

THE answer to the question appears to be, ‘Er, no,’ according to the guests in the ever excellent Blogtalk TV produced by Northern Visions in Belfast.
Mick Fealty, creator and head buck cat at Slugger O’Toole, esteemed Belfast journalist and publisher Máirtín Ó Muilleoir and Gary McKeown discuss the future of news and the blogosphere with Donal Lyons.
Why Trinity Mirror or Johnson can’t harness the talents of the independent sector like this to augment their regional newspaper coverage and build new online markets – I have no idea.
I’ll let you sit down and have a wee look at an excellent debate on the future of news, primarily in Northern Ireland, but with wider lessons.
