"Which internet is Keen an expert on?" -- Kristine Lowe

Journalism Kristine Lowe offers a welcome argument against Andrew Keen's Cult of the Amateur, which says that amateur journalists and bloggers are ruining it for the professionals: "Well I say, good riddance, if those were artificially imposed tastes that didn't reflect reality, we are much better served without them. Except, I don't buy into the argument that internet is destroying our economy and our culture, that it will replace professional journalists with an army of stampeding citizen journalists bent on destroying everything in their way, leaving all mainstream media outlets and publishing houses bankrupt."
