Quote, unqote: on the remade, but ignored, information landscape

"...Much of the fundamental (and sometimes final)training we offer journalism students is dished out as if none of it were happening. As if the boulder-sized granularity of the news cycle had not melted in a quicksilver stream. As if the line between author and audience has not been smudged to grey and as if, really, nothing much had changed about the fundamentals of journalistic narrative despite a wholesale remaking of the information landscape." 
-- Journalism teacher Wayne McPhail, writing on J-source in a long essay about how journalism schools are failing today's students and leaving them ill-prepared for the emerged and emerging digital world.
