Yesterday, leading newspaper industry blogger Alan Mutter asked, "Can grassroots journalism do the job?" In a comment, I replied:
Thank you! Meaning well, other journalists have not always been as skeptical of my efforts. In the end, that made for occasionally too-soft stories about me and Gannett Blog.
You were there in the beginning, Alan, so it's fitting that you'd be there as I exit, stage right.
(Now, do I get bonus points for posting this from my iPhone?)
But the other comments on his post are much more interesting!
