ABSTRACT. Cooper says that the dissemination of news and information to the vast majority of citizens will continue to come from the commercial mass media for the foreseeable future. Palmer claims that the paradox of user control is that of the illusion of choice within which the user is offered up for a form of soft domination. Brodsky claims that the nature of the news is changing. Freedman observes that the internet presents a genuine challenge to the business operations of traditional news organizations. Shirky holds that people are interested in bulk sources, in expert editorial judgment, and in serendipity. (pp. 264–272)
