Summary Shepard recounts his five decades in journalism: a time of radical transformations in the way news is developed, delivered, and consumed. In the digital age, anyone can be a journalist. Opinion pieces are replacing original reporting as the coin of the realm. And an entire generation is relying on Facebook friends and Twitter feeds to tell them what to read. Is this the beginning of an irreversible slide into third-rate journalism-- or the start of a better world of interactive, multimedia journalism?
